Gayle states "My current prints are influenced by my travels around the world and by my own environment in Edinburgh.
I have taken my inspiration from the colours, architecture, landscapes and symbols that have influenced me on my journeys and at home in my day-to-day life. My prints contain icon-like elements - from trees to letters. These elements relate to my interest in Russian, Egyptian and Italian iconography. which I like to incorporate into my imagery.
A collagraph print is based on the art of collage, I recycle paper and materials together to build up an image on a piece of card. Once the image is complete I intaglio print my card plate to reproduce my collage onto paper, forming my print."
