Award-winning artist Gayel Childress works in watercolors as well as oils and monoprints. She is best known for her fluid interpretations of landscapes and figures that capture the essence of the moment with a superb touch of humor.
Her contributions to the art community within the Ojai Valley have been monumental. She, along with Marta Nelson and Bert Collins, founded the Ojai Studio Artist’s Tour in the late 1980s. The results have been thousands of dollars contributed to arts education as well as tremendous economic vitality to the Ojai Studio Artists and the community of Ojai.
These studio visits are different from FOTM’s Spotlight Series and other events you may have attended online. See you in the Studio! featured artists have all been documented by FOTM and are the inspiration for the lesson plans of FOTM’s in-school art program, Learning to See Outreach. Says Education Director, Aimee French, “The artwork and life stories of these extraordinary artists in our community provide our youth with present day role models who have excelled in pursuit of their passions.”
