Gay, an Atlanta native, received her AA in Graphic Design and Fashion Marketing from the Art Institute of Atlanta (1999), a BA in Painting from The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), summa cum laude (2015), and an MFA at Georgia State University. Gay was one of ten selected artists for OFF THE WALL a city-wide Mural initiative led by WonderRoot and the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee (2018).
Gay's artwork has been purchased by actor Samuel L. Jackson and singer/ song writer Leon Russell. Media exposure includes the Gospel Music Channel's new show "Hype and Glory". Gay strives to capture the hospitality, dignity, morals and the piece/ peace of her southern upbringing in each visual composition, with hopes that the viewer will be there with her.
The artist currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
