Gayle Havens is a watercolor artist living in Hendersonville, NC. Land, sea and sky are inspiration for her paintings. She prefers scenes of transitional light - dawn, dusk, and overcast light. Using  a limited palette and narrower value range, she strives to convey atmosphere and mood rather than a narrative in her paintings.   Watercolor pigments, because of their  unique qualities of airy delicacy, fluidity and transparency, are  her choice of medium.   
Gayle is a Signature Member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society and the Virginia Watercolor Society, a juried member of the Women Painters of the Southeast, and a member of the North Carolina Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society, and Pennsylvania Watercolor Society. She is represented by the The Asheville Gallery of Art, Asheville, NC. Gayle took undergraduate classes in studio art and art history at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and  the University of New Mexico.  Recent exhibitions and awards include:
