Gayle is an animal and wildlife artist who works in a realistic style. She has corporate and private collectors of her original paintings and giclee prints throughout the world.
Gayle developed a love of animals and the countryside as a child. She spent many happy hours watching animals and birds in the wilder parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire. A degree in Zoology from Liverpool University added an understanding of structure and form to the more intimate knowledge of behaviour she had gained from many hours of observation. Gayle researches each animal or bird in as much detail as possible before painting or drawing them. She particularly enjoys portraying the detail in the fur and feathers of her subjects. A small stream has been created in her garden which together with two ponds and a small area sown with meadow flowers encourages visits by many species of birds and small mammals.
Each year, Gayle visits the North America to enjoy the remote places and seek inspiration from the wild animals she encounters - including wolves, coyotes and grizzly bears in Yellowstone and Black Bears and Moose in Canada. However she continues to get as much pleasure in the many small animals that she finds on her travels as the large impressive ones.
