Andrea Gaye, Juror
Original Oil Paintings; Landscape/Figurative
A painter since childhood, Andrea Gaye has exhibited extensively in America, in England (Brighton and London) and France (Paris). Art education includes the Brighton School of Art, a year of independent study in Paris, and twelve years as Assistant to the renowned Spanish artist/teacher Sebastian Capella. Workshops include John Asaro, Ned Mueller, Ovanes Berberian, Herb Olds and Carolyn Anderson.  An avid traveler, Andrea loves to paint finished landscapes en plein air, while using her camera and quick sketches to inspire larger paintings in her studio.

All paintings are in oil on linen canvas.
