Gayle Havens is a watercolor artist living in Hendersonville, NC. Land, sea and sky are inspiration for her paintings. She paints scenes of transitional and diffused  light  - dawn, dusk and moonlight - depicting atmosphere and mood rather than a narrative. A limited palette, narrower value range, muted colors  and soft edges  suggest a quiet and contemplative mood.   Watercolor pigments, because of their  unique qualities of airy delicacy, fluidity and transparency, are  her choice of medium.   
Gayle took undergraduate classes in studio art and art history at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, the University of New Mexico and Penland School of Crafts. After graduation, painting took a back seat while she helped run a family-owned  business and later took graduate classes at the University of Virginia in environmental philosophy and ethics. In 2007, art and painting again took center stage. Setting up a home studio, she devoted her time to watercolor classes, workshops and self-study with a particular interest in the historical and re-emerging Tonalist tradition. Today, her works reflect both her life long passions of care for the environment and love of painting.  
Gayle is a Signature Member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society and the Virginia Watercolor Society, and a member of the North Carolina Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society,  Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, and The American Society of Marine Artists.  Recent exhibitions and awards include:
