Gay Marks has called Silver City home for almost 40 years. Growing up on Army bases across the U.S. and abroad, she moved almost every year before finally settling in the mountains of the Gila to work as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Gay feels fortunate to not only call Silver City home but to have the opportunity at this point in her life to explore her early interest in painting. Gay paints in oils and is interested in a wide variety of subjects - faces and places and all things in between. As Winston Churchill once wrote, "We may content ourselves with a joy ride in a paint box." A joy ride indeed!
