Gay Banowsky


I have an undergraduate degree with a minor in art from David Lipscomb College in Nashville, Tennessee in the 50’s.  After ten years traveling from Texas to New Mexico then California with my husband and four sons I began to paint again.  While my husband was President of Pepperdine Universityin Malibu I went back to college and receiveda masters degree in art from California State University Northridge.

I taught part time at Pepperdine in the art department until we moved to Norman Oklahomawhere I taught part time at Oscar Rose College.  I have been blessed to have studied under many artists and have been in several galleries.  I studied at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.  I started out with watercolor and considered myself a watercolorist, then was wooed by oil and love that medium, however as I have gotten older I became hooked on acrylic which is now my primary medium.  Painting for me transports me toa wonderful place.  I love it.
