Teacher Introduction

 

 

Gayle Drysdale

Gayle Drysdale
Landscape Artist

I have been interested in art my whole life and sold my first painting to my art teacher in the 1960's. Once I got married and had a daughter life and family took over my schedule and I wasn’t’ able to back to painting until my daughter became a young teenager.

I have been a decorative artist for the past 10 years and have branched into landscapes and seascapes. I have taught myself, through a variety of means, the techniques for tube acrylic landscape art. I have picked up various techniques and ideas from some wonderful and talented local artists as well as Jerry Yarnell and Brenda Harris to name just a few.

My husband is my greatest supporter and has encouraged me to pursue my painting passion all these years. I love to paint and share the beauty of this art form with others. I look forward to meeting you in the studio at one of the upcoming classes.
