Gyl loves art, and always has done since she was a little girl. All she ever loved doing was painting, and drawing, even possibly to her mum's dismay on the bedroom walls at times too, and that's when she was a teenager.
"All I can ever remember loving doing when I was little all the way growing up was drawing, painting and making art. it was my favourite thing right throughout primary and high school all I ever wanted to work as was an artist." Gyl Rae
She is fascinated by light and colour, and loves nothing more than with playing with light, patterns, marks, colours and shapes. Often fascinated and inspired by nature and the world around her.
For Gyl art is about space.
Her professional background; as well as lecturing and teaching in the field of art and design for further education, secondary and primary schools; has been working for the Scottish Arts Council, NHS, and Dundee Contemporary Arts. She has also run her own health and well being business within Educational Authorities and incorporates several years working in management and the health, well being and fitness industry with adults.
She volunteers on global projects and with local community groups, having fun teaching children and teenagers fitness.
Gyl also loves to write about everyday life, you'll find some of her blogs and articles on here.
