Jay is an award winning juried artist member of the Cape Cod Art Center. As an active member of the Yarmouth Art Guild and the Monday Painters in Dennis, she regularly exhibits in their art shows. Her paintings are in homes in Canada, New England and all along the East Coast. Two
of her works were chosen to be featured on menus at the Daniel Webster Inn in Sandwich.
Jay’s artistic expression began with fabric as her medium in clothing design and quilting. She taught arts and crafts and Family and Consumer Science for many years. She transferred her love of color to watercolor
painting when she moved to Cape Cod. Jay captures the beautiful light of the sand, sky and water with a gentle style that is calm and soothing. She has studied with numerous artists and continues to experiment with capturing the essence of Cape Cod.
Like most artists, she felt the need to expand into a different medium, hence her works in water soluble oils - healthier for her and the environment. Her next step was changing to acrylics which are evolving as she learns. Whatever the medium, she loves to paint.
