Gayle Faulkner

“I have termed my paintings Textural Acrylics and I get very excited as I watch the paint come off the palette knife in a variety of textures and combinations of color. Every painting is full of emotion and in-the-moment creativity. I start with an idea and a very loose drawing, usually 5-6 lines of composition, and then become immersed in the process. I have always said that a painting is like a child that you nurture, have conversations with, work through the teenage angst with love and patience and what emerges is a beautiful adult. When I paint, I put on the music (louder than I would have let my children play it), dance to the beat and even sing, which is a terrible sound. I want my joy to come across to the viewer and I want them to share the beautiful place that I have created. All are invited to enter the painting, smell the flowers, listen to the rustle of the leaves, lean against a tree and just breathe.”

Having taken several workshops and classes exploring elements and principles of design and various media, including acrylics, Gayle considers her most important educational process to be the many hours spent in her studio finding her own creative voice. Her willingness to step outside the box and hone her skills has led her to a body of work that embodies her interpretations of the landscapes of our world.
