Growing up in Northwestern Ontario, Gayle was exposed to many aspects of nature and she now finds her inspiration from the natural world. Gayle attained my Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts at Lakehead University in 2016 and her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba in 2019. Gayle is attending a summer session at Pilchuck Glass School in July 2019 and pursuing her artistic career in her hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Her previous exhibitions include: Perspectives from Here at the Thunder Bay art Gallery (2017) and Contrasts and Contradictions: The Polarizing Qualities of Glass at the Living Arts Centre (2018). She is also part of an upcoming group exhibition, En Route (2019), at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery. Gayle’s current works consist of glass sculptures that address the relationships that non-human animals develop with humans in urban centers. By depicting animals that are prevalent in the urban landscape viewers are encouraged to contemplate their relationships with the specific animals and the natural world more broadly.
