Gazie Nagle is a self-learned artist and has been commissioned in both painting and photography. Oil painting was enjoyed throughout her childhood and she liked to draw friends and celebrities. Today she paints in acrylics.
Gazie's interest for photography peeked as an adult after moving into the Lowcountry area near Charleston, SC. The area offers everything an artist would want to photograph and/or paint. Nature has become her favorite classroom and traveling the back roads enables her to capture unique country landscapes as well as learning the historical significance behind them.
Learning Lowcountry history has been a constant since being a historic guide in one of Charleston's townhomes owned by a merchant and a planter in the 1800s. It was an opportunity to be first in photographing and selling photos in the house museum gift shop. It taught her to look from different angles in shooting repetitive subjects.
She moved on and connected with a few different art guilds and became a juried exhibiting member of the Charleston Artist Guild and Gallery in both painting, and later photography. For a short period she exhibited her photography in the Ingram Fine Art & Antiques Gallery in Charleston until they closed. Her work has been shown at Mullis Medical Center, Carolina EyeCare Center, Gibbes Museum of Art, City Gallery at the Waterfront, public exhibits, juried shows, and several pieces hang in private homes across the country.
She has a two-page photography spread in the 2015 'International Masters of Photography Book.'
In 2010 she compiled a photography book titled: ' Lowcountry Oak Avenues - of historic plantations.' She is currently working on her next book on the same subject matter.
She has received numerous photography awards through the years and she continues to work on her photography knowledge and skills
