After a long and successful commercial art career in New York, Gavin is dedicating herself to fine art. “My style is painterly… displaying realism, without fussy detail,” she said. “I like to explore a fleeting moment within the mood of the day.”

Gavin, Millville, N.J., a past competitor in the hunter and equitation rings, now rides occasionally when not painting. This week’s cover, The Conversation, is a 9″x12″ oil.
