Gaye Sekula enjoys painting the wonder of the fleeting moment. She feels emotion and liveliness are best captured in simplicity and finds vignettes most suitable to her style. She has studied under such masters as Carolyn Anderson,  Albert Handell, Laura Robb, Henry Yan, Jeffrey Watts and Zhaoming Wu and has been greatly influenced by Richard Schmid, Tibor Nagy, and Nicolai Fechin. Gaye has been active in the art community for almost two decades serving in various capacities on several boards. She currently serves as Texas State Ambassador for the Portrait Society of America. 
Gaye was born in San Antonio, Texas. After several years living abroad, she and her husband returned to settle in San Antonio.
Painting is much like meditation, it is being present and keenly aware, but at the same time, letting go and trusting in all you have learned thus far. Many artists have tried to describe  it with phrases such as  "following the muse", "feeling the hand of God on yours", or "being in the flow".  Regardless, it is really something undefinable, yet undeniable. I feel the following quote sums it up quite well: “We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too.”
