Haylee Ryan Yale is a local artist and musician. Ever since she sold her first portrait drawing in 9th grade, she has been working to capture everyday people in her art. She recieved her BA from the University of Dallas in Painting and continues to be intrigued with the human figure, paticularly the face. A body and a face, to Haylee, is a story. Every wrinkle, every squint in an eye, every piece of physical wear and tear, is an insight into experience. Haylee has explored many painting processes as she carefully and humbly tries to share people's story through her art. She has been an elementary art teacher for the past two years and continues to work and sell paintings.
