Savannah Gayle, affectionately known as "Savvy", is a visually impaired (legally blind) artist from Los Angeles, California. Although she developed an interest in art at a very young age, she did not share her art with others until she began losing her eyesight in 2017.
"After learning that I was going blind, and having three eye surgeries that could not correct my eyesight, I had fallen into a depression. Luckily, I was able to use art to pull myself out of it."
Savannah's artwork is a combination of vibrant colors, textures, and shapes that tell stories inspired by her life experiences. From collages, acrylic paintings, digital art and more, she works with a variety of materials to create pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind. Her goal is to make unique, meaningful art that captures the imagination, exhibits her love for fashion, allows for self expression, and brings joy to others.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Savannah Gayle.
Savannah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Well, I’ve always been creative and my interest in art started at a young age. I was always trying to recreate something I had seen in a way that allowed me to express myself. As I grew up and turned my attention toward other things, I never lost interest in being creative. And now, years later, I’m still finding ways to express myself through art.
