Artist’s Statement

David Tay, Ann Dauphin and Nora Gelb:

The Tay Family is a very artistic family. The 3 siblings are self taught artists and
found their passion in various fields of art- photography, charcoal/ sketch drawings,
mixed media/ acrylics.
David Tay is the youngest of the three. He is a pharmacist and resides in Fairport
with his beautiful wife and 1 year old daughter, 3 cats, and a fish. David’s interest in
pencil drawing started at a very young age. In grade school he would sell his version
of teenage mutant ninja turtles and dungeons and dragons to his classmates.
Currently, he has added charcoal drawings as one of his favorite medium.
Ann Dauphin is a research scientist that resides in Charlton, MA with her husband
and 2 rescued pups. She and her husband love to travel, which is where her love of
photography developed. She shares her travel experiences with her family and
friends through her artistic photos. Ann has a diverse subject matter, but her
passion in photography is to capture nature, sunsets, historical buildings, and
Nora Gelb , a local self-taught artist resides in Pittsford with her husband, 4 kids,
and several 4-legged rescue pets. With a psychology and nursing degree, she
worked with mentally/ developmentally challenged children and adolescence
before starting her path in art. Nora chose to stay at home to raise her kids. During
this time, she began painting furniture, frames, home décor,…and eventually
canvas/wood, as a creative outlet. She enjoys painting all subject matter, using
mixed medium and acrylic in her art, and take art classes in the community and
online. Today, Nora creates at kids/adult mobile paint classes, holds kids summer
