Gayle Bell, contemporary artist, Orlando native and fine arts graduate from UCF, creates painted and drawn images of her world, however she sees it and wherever it may lead. With eclectic interests, she creates a variety of artworks, from portraits to still life to abstracts and nudes. She has also done illustrating and recently finished artwork for the book, Sunny the Rooster.
Currently in the fellowship program at Crealde School of Art in Winter Park, she assists with the children’s art program and is working on developing her portfolio. Lately, appropriations from the masters, such as da Vinci, Michelangelo and Magritte, have become an enjoyable respite to cope with the trials of modern-day existence as well as to help develop artistic skills.
Gayle is especially drawn to portraiture and never tires of the joyful challenge of attempting to capture the personality and vitality of our fellow earthly creatures. Some examples of her images are here.
Thank you for stopping by and take care.
“A work of art is a world in itself reflecting senses and emotions of the artist’s world.” — Hans Hofmann
