Gaye has enjoyed working professionally as an artist for over 30 years. During that time, she has explored most mediums and subject matter. Through it all what remains constant is her delight with painting the effects of light and atmosphere, which is the signature of her work.
An avid plein air painter, she immerses herself in nature, and finds the knowledge and experience gained painting in the field is key in informing her larger studio works. Gaye works primarily in oils because it lends itself so well to painting on location. She travels to remote and pristine locations, primarily in British Columbia, for the love and challenge of it.Read more
