 Gaye Boltong

Gaye is a self confessed travel addict and self taught artist. Her first travel adventure in 1971 began in a Kombi van in Melbourne and ended in 1973 in Holland. In that overland trip, she covered thousands of kilometres, sixty four countries, hundreds of photographs and armfuls of exciting memories!

Then with a young family, she moved to Indonesia in 1975 to a new job and life. Gaye enjoyed her painting holidays in Spain, Tuscany and France which taught her the basics of using various art media to translate her feelings onto canvas and paper. After 27 years as an expat, Gaye retired and returned to Melbourne to a spend time with her grandchildren, her garden, her art and the luxury of doing as she pleases!

Gaye still enjoys travelling to new places, having just returned from Italy, Greece, France, Spain and the Mediterranean. She spends a lot of time in Bali and Indonesia as she considers that her spiritual home and the place to re-vitalise her inner soul and creative spirit.

Gaye has set up a new venture…Bali Painting Holidays where she takes like minded artists to Bali and introduces them to the culture, the people, and the fantastic places perfect for plein air painting. In the future, she is also looking to combine painting with Photography and Writing in these trips.
