Gaye started her art career in 1989 custom painting clothing, furniture and murals for children. This grew into a business covering everything from fine art portraiture to interior decorative painting for homes and businesses in New York and Connecticut.
After closing the business in 2013 she continued studying portraiture and also attended a more formal program of figure drawing at Grand Central Atelier in New York. While completing many commissions that included botanical subjects she realized how much she enjoyed understanding and accurately depicting the design of the flowers themselves. From there it seemed only natural to focus on drawing and painting flowers and plants full time.
Gaye earned a certificate with honours in botanical illustration at the New York Botanical Garden in 2019. She is a Society of Botanical Artists Fellow and a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and the Tri-State Botanical Artists of NYBG.
