Gaye Adams

During the three decades that have spanned Gaye’s career in art, her focus has been painting what delights her most: the effects of atmosphere and light.

Gaye’s paintings are representational but generally rendered in a loose fashion, as understatement best suits her personality and process. It brings her great pleasure to take advantage of opportunities to travel and paint on location as frequently as her schedule allows.

Currently Gaye is working in both oil paints and in soft pastels, enjoying these mediums for their malleable and direct nature. She shows and sells her work nationally and internationally, and she also teaches both at home and abroad. In addition to being a member of the Oil Painters of America, Gaye holds senior signature status with the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Pastel Artists of Canada. She works out of her home studio in Blind Bay, BC.

Become a Raincoaster

Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains. 

Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
