Gayla Hodson is an Artist/Painter who works out of her studio in Pendleton, IN.  Joyful, happy, colorful, energetic,  playful and positive are words people use to describe her work...and that is exactly what she likes to hear.

Just as important as it is for her to express herself through paint, it is also important that she develop her own unique style.  She has been a full-time painter since 2006. Prior to becoming a full-time painter, she was an art teacher.

June-July 2017 Exhibit 

This exhibit will include brightly colored paintings on canvas of flowers, cityscapes and hearts.

Installation-Cincinnati Children's Hospital Clinical  2015-Pavilion installation. Seven works were created for the new facility.  During my art making work shops with the researchers...the paintings inspired the composition for my final works by interweaving the cellular structures' gestural forms with elements of nature.  Below is just one of the pieces that can be found in the Pavilion. 

I have always felt energy from urban landscapes. The architecture and the people who dwell in urban settings inspire me.

Since I was a child I have loved flowers and nature..  Their shapes and colors draw me in, giving me a feeling of happiness, peace and joy.  

The simple shape of a heart communicates love.  It has endless possibilities to convey that message for me ...using various colors, shapes, compositions and forms. 

Painting with out the confines of 

an image is fun!  The composition becomes about color, shape and texture.
