Gemma Gylling An American Artist, Specializing in Animal Art

Gemma Gylling is a California native who grew up on a small ranch in Southern California and currently resides in Valley Springs, California with her family and two dogs. It was on that small ranch where she developed her love of nature and animals.

After years of experimenting in oils and subsequently taking classes from a well known artist, Edgardo Garcia, she realized her artistic potential. For many years she created oil paintings portraying tranquil wildlife and nature. She then became interested in the colored pencil medium and continued her pursuit of art by taking workshops from well known colored pencil artists. She developed her colored pencil technique to a photo-realism quality. Her method is applying several layers of color using the colored pencil. The result simulates the look of an oil or acrylic painting. When people see her work they almost always say, "I can't believe this is done with colored pencils". Gemma is known for her attention to detail and her skill with the colored pencils, which is currently enjoyed by many animal art collectors.

Some of Gemma's other passions are Seascapes in Oil and creating Stained Glass windows. Many Clients enjoy Gemma's Limited Edition Prints of her Animal Art and her Oil Paintings.
