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.

Welcome to Whidbey Island! Our beautiful island is surrounded by the grandeur of emerald green forests and the expansive waters of Puget Sound. It’s the perfect place to take a tour around the island on a power or sail boat, or even paddle a kayak. You might just catch the wondrous sight of whales frolicking, or eagles soaring!

Things to do

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

The Orchard Kitchen, which opened this past July, is the culmination of a vision that owners Vincent and Tyla Nattress created years ago when they were living in Napa Valley, California. They made a “Vision Board” that was a picture of how they wanted to live and how they wanted to make a living. The first need was to find a place in a beautiful setting with affordable land where they would have a farm to grow the crops for a unique farm-to-table experience.
