Gayle has been a member of Sequoia Gallery for several years, and recently moved into one of the onsite studio spaces. She has been painting in oils for about 10 years, calling on a variety of experiences, classes and workshops that have formulated her impressionistic style. She has a varied artistic background and jokingly says she is probably a better gardener than a painter. Gayle’s large garden in Gaston is like a canvas that changes with the seasons providing year-round inspiration.
Gayle’s current series of paintings was inspired by a visit to France including Claude Monet’s Giverny, Provence and Paris. Her paintings are a small survey of her trip, capturing the light, the villages, the flowers and the feel of France.
