Artist Gayle GersonGayle Gerson was born in Troy, New York in 1948. She received a BA degree in secondary education from SUNY at Albany in 1970. After traveling with her husband and raising two children, she earned a Masters degree in School Counseling in 1995. In 1999, she began to work full time in developing a career in fine art, specializing in collage and watermedia and, most recently, oil.

Gayle has studied under the guidance of many artists in watercolor and in experimental workshops. She does weekly life drawing and painting sessions with a group of Western Colorado artists. She is a member of the Western Colorado Watercolor Society, the National Collage Society, , and a signature member of the Colorado Watercolor Society. She is devoted to learning something from every artist, every art book and each work of art. She is most inspired by the works of Hopper, Diebenkorn, Vermeer, Bonnard and Van Gogh for their genius in depicting the nature of color and light.

Gayle Gerson Artist Statement: The product of every artistic attempt is ultimately a form of self portrait. We respond to a great work of art because the artist has succeeded in using this self-portrait to communicate some powerful truth about the human experience.
