Gaye Leggat was born in a small lakeside community in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia in Canada. She left home for university in Vancouver at the age of 17 and completed a five year Bachelor’s Degree in Education. At the age of 19, she spent three months as a student travelling from Paris to Rome exploring art galleries and museums. Gaye was greatly influenced by the works of Impressionist painters, especially Claude Monet and his paintings of Giverny. After a short career teaching high school, she embarked on a creative life of building and renovating residential housing. During a brief sojourn in Arizona in 1979, Leggat discovered her passion for photography learning darkroom processes. Her world of interiors and design has influenced how she looks at the environments where people live. During the last 5 years, she has spent time photographing in Cuba. With each visit, she discovered the people and their landscape. She had a solo exhibit of her Cuba work in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2019. Leggat has now turned inward with her photographic work. She finds solace exploring the forests, shores, and wild waters of Desolation Sound while living on a remote Pacific coast island where she has built a home. She is currently working on a Project entitled, “Reflections: Seeing the Seasons”
