Biographical Sketch
 
 
Gail was born and raised in Western Massachusetts, spending her formative years outdoors, drawing and painting the surrounding farms and forests, developing a deep connection to natural environments. She pursued her love of art with a rigorous, traditional art training at Paier College of Art later spending many years as an art director and illustrator in the Boston, Massachusetts and New Hampshire area while continuing to paint.

It is my hope that the viewer would walk away with a new perspective on nature, life or a particular matter as the result of viewing this series.
