BioGayle Levee learned to draw and paint from her parents and grandparents -- one grandfather was a cartoonist, one grandmother a watercolorist; her mother studied illustration, and her father studied painting. After majoring in art education in Colorado while selling her paintings in New Mexico, she moved East to work in the field of illustration for the major publishers in Boston and New York. While in Boston, she met Robert Douglas Hunter. Hunter taught her the principles of painting which he had learned from a succession of master painters going back to Rembrandt. This was a turning point in Levee's career. Since then she has been sharing that information and selling her work to significant collectors throughout the world.
