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, Chris Raccioppi, Travis Schlaht, Ted Minoff, and Patrick Byrne, among others.

Gayle’s work has been exhibited at The MEAM Museum, Sotheby’s Los Angeles, The National Arts Club, Salmagundi Club, Williamsburg Art and Historical Center, Principle 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 Art Renewal Center’s juried salons (2017, 2016, 2015), the Portrait Society of America (2018, 2016) competition, and the Artist’s Magazine (2015, 2009).

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.”
