Gayle Madeira (b. 1969 Texas) was raised on a farm in Virginia where developed an intense love for nature. A shy child, she began making art at a young age as well as dancing. Later, with a BFA in dance from SUNY Purchase and a move to NYC, Gayle made her living dancing and doing illustration and graphic design.

Starting in 2013, Gayle decided to fulfill her lifelong dream of being a fine artist working in oils. She studied under many wonderful teachers at Grand Central Academy, New York Academy of Art, The Art Students League, and Salmagundi Club with teachers Alyssa Monks, David Kassan, Quang Ho, Travis Schlaht, Ted Minoff, and Patrick Byrne (among others) but her main instruction is from Chris Raccioppi who she continues to study with privately.

Gayle’s work has been exhibited at the MEAM Museum (Museu Europeu d’Art Modern), Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, Sotheby’s (NYC and Los Angeles), Salmagundi Club, The National Arts Club, Williamsburg Art and Historical Center, Principle Gallery, Abend Gallery, Foundation Gallery, and the New York Hall of Science, among others. Her paintings have appeared in various magazines, books, and films and have been finalists in the Figurativas competition (2019), Art Renewal Center’s juried salons (2020 figurative and landscape, 2019, 2018, 2016, 2015), the Portrait Society of America (2020, 2019, 2018, 2016) competition, and the Artist’s Magazine (2019, 2015, 2014, 2009). Her painting “Young American Dreaming” was included in the exhibition “Painting The Figure NOW II” at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art from July 9 to Sept 28, 2019 alongside artists Vincent Desiderio, Nick Alm, and Bo Bartlett among others. Gayle’s painting “Storm At Sea” was shown in the International Artist Magazine’s December 2020/January 2021 issue #136 and her painting “American Dreaming” was shown in the International Artist Magazine’s December 2019/January 2020 issue #130. Gayle is a member of the Salmagundi Club in NY, is an ARC Associate Living Master, and has signature status in the International Plein Air Painters Association and American Women Artists.

The following has been said about her work: “Gayle’s paintings encapsulate moments of beauty in a timeless fashion. They transcend any real place and time and send the viewer into a parallel reality. Her style is influenced equally by old masters and contemporary art and she masters them both. While naturalistic, it is subjective and captures the spirit of the subject imbued with a relatable melancholy.”
