Gayle Levée, a third generation artist, was formed by the expanses of the West. Born in Montana, her artistic eye was sharpened by her experiences while growing up in the thin, clear air and brisk winds of Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. During her studies in Painting at the University of Denver, her work found a following in galleries located in Estes Park, Taos, and Santa Fe.
Levée's artistic style found its true voice in New England when mastering techniques of painting encompassed by a movement known as “The Boston School of Impressionism”. These impressionists emphasize carefully planned compositions based upon accurate drawing, bold use of color, and the delightful interplay of light and shadow to create atmosphere and depth within a painting. But there is more to what The Boston School offered and demanded of artists; it also developed artists who could teach.
'When students take a workshop with Gayle Levee, they are not just studying with a single talented still-life painter but with an entire school of artists whose tradition and techniques have been passed on since the turn of the 20th century.' Quote by American Artist Magazine
