Gaylen says, “The complex variety and co-dependence of all plants and animals, the forces of nature that shape the land and sea, and how these relationships affect our lives amaze me and inspire my art.  I seek to go beyond realism to suggest the unseen mystery of intertwining life on earth as I attempt to convey the heart, beauty, spirit and connection of our natural world.”  Gaylen thanks you for your support!


 Artworks Gallery is located on Greenbank Farm on Whidbey Island.   For more information, visit the web site: or call 360.222.3010.
