Gayle Printz is an Internationally recognized American Abstract Artist whose work is part of the Permanent Exhibit of Le Musée de Peinture de Saint-Frajou in France. Growing up, Gayle attended Interlochen Arts Academy for eight summers. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania and her Juris Doctorate from Boston University School of Law. In August 2020, Ms. Printz established Fine Art Sales, Abstract Art by Gayle Printz, an online Art Gallery exclusively composed of her original abstract paintings.
Using color, flow, three-dimensionality, and distinct brushwork as tools of expression, Gayle creates paintings that transcend the familiar. She is famous for drawing the viewer in and inviting them to assign personal meaning and universal context by listening to the whispers of their imagination. Look closely, and you may even notice a magical quality to her paintings; they are known to somehow change depending upon the angle at which you gaze. As with life, the meaning in Gayle's work depends upon the way you look at it.
Gayle Printz's paintings have been lauded by critics and collectors of Abstract Art, Abstract Expressionism, Art-Resilience, Art Informel and Tachisme. She throws her heart onto every canvas. Her signature dripping techniques are controlled, confident, and not easily replicated. Every stroke or dab is placed with intention. There is great meaning in her artwork, but Gayle Printz will neither define that meaning nor intrude on the viewer’s personal interpretation. Because she believes that the importance of a painting is based upon the emotion it evokes, Gayle wants to give the viewer uninterrupted freedom to feel. She wants you to experience the world in unanticipated ways.

It has been said that "The isolation of Gayle Printz has been a universal gain for the Art World." For, although it seems impossible to anyone who has seen her work, Gayle Printz picked up her first paintbrush in May of 2020. For Gayle, creating these remarkable works of art during the pandemic helped her to bring lightness and beauty back into a world that was interrupted. Now, by encouraging each of us to use our imagination as the lens through which to find meaning in her work, Gayle Printz can share that beauty with any viewer open to embarking on this subconscious journey.
