    Born in Stillwater, OK and raised throughout the West, Gay Faulkenberry grew up in an artistic family and was encouraged at an early age to pursue her art. Gay studied at both Southwestern State and Oklahoma State Universities, but it wasn't until a trip to Taos, New Mexico in 1978 that Gay took a more serious direction to pursuing a fine art career. Her in-depth training with noted Russian-born artist Sergei Bongart gave Gay a solid foundation in representational painting. In addition, she has studied with Ray Vinella, Ned Jacob and Mark Daily. Since that time she has attained national recognition with her work and exhibits throughout the country.

Painting professionally for the past twenty years, Gay's subject matter is well rounded and includes Still Life, Floral, Landscapes and Interiors. Her work is found in many private and corporate collections and featured in numerous art publications. From the school of impressionism/realism, Gay has attracted a growing audience of collectors as well as receiving numerous awards of excellence. She is a signature member and acting secretary of the prestigious Plein Air Painters of America, as well as a signature member of American Women Artists and Alla Prima International.

Gay now teaches workshops throughout the United States and various regions of France, Italy and Belgium. Although Gay has lived in Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado, she now resides in Duncan, Oklahoma with her husband.
