Gayle fulwyler Smith

Gayle fulwyler Smith’s light-filled watercolors--of Southwestern landscapes, flowers, old buildings and animals on her farm and of places visited in the Americas and Europe-- have won numerous awards and are in many private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad.



Over many years I have worked to develop the skill to express in my paintings and drawings what is important to me-- the way the light illuminates just those branches in the middle of many branches, the translucent salmon color of those roses, the majesty of cliff faces in the desert. I  keep trying to see my world in a fresh way and, hopefully, share some of the wonder with others.


I studied art and humanities at University of New Mexico, University of Colorado, Denver University, Famous Artists Correspondence course and various workshops. I taught watercolor and drawing for many years. My work has been juried into regional and national shows and competitions, including Watercolor West and Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition, and has won many awards. It was included in the “International Artist magazine” and also “The Best of Watercolor” and “Landscape Inspirations”, both published by Rockport Publishers, Inc.


Her work may be seen by appointment at her Studio/Gallery in Embudo, New Mexico.
