With confident brushstrokes Gayle tickles our imaginations with her fun and unique take. About Gayle’s paintings one of her admirers points out “Life would be that much more dull for the rest of us without Gayle’s art. There’s so much joy in watching the playful dance with style, color and emotion.”
Gayle received her undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Management from the University of Maryland, but her favorite classes were drawing and graphic arts. As an adult her professional worlds of medicine and insurance took her to Washington DC, Maryland and California where her love of art brought her to Apparel Arts of San Francisco. At AASF, Gayle delved into clothing design and patterning. She found a second creative outlet – watercolor painting. She took watercolor classes in San Mateo, CA and Bloomington, IL, experienced plein air painting with Myna Wacknov in Brugge, Belgium, and worked with many talented teachers in Bloomington where she was involved in two art salons at the Eaton Gallery. She co-founded Inside Out: Accessible Art, a Co-Op Gallery in Bloomington, IL.
Since relocating to the Lowcountry in 2014 Gayle is very involved in the art community, All About Art in Sun City and the Society of Bluffton Artist in Bluffton, SC and the Art League of Hilton Head. Her work has won her awards and was included in the Telfair Museum F3A Show. She served as Vice President of All About Art and is the President of Society of Bluffton Artist, SOBA. Her work is available at SoBA, the Art League of Hilton Head, Diva Nail Salon, and Alexander’s Restaurant on Hilton Head Island.
