Gayle Levee is a third-generation artist whose classical training began during childhood. She majored in painting at the Univerity of Denver. While still in school, she supported herself on sales of her art in galleries in Taos, Santa Fe and Estes Park. In her early twenties, she moved East.
In New England, Gayle joined the Copley Society and studied under Robert Douglas Hunter. Her new work was quickly recognised by galleries in Boston, on Cape Cod, in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and the Central South. Collectors from coast to coast have bought her work, which has won awards throughout the United States.
