Gail read Modern History at Oxford, and then studied for an MA in the History of European Art at the Courtauld Institute. Her first job was at Tate Britain, and she then worked for the Arts Council, as a consultant (in Illuminated Manuscripts) for Christie's and at the Courtauld Institute. Marriage to a foreign correspondent brought travel and a variety of working experiences. In Rome she was Deputy Director of the Keats Shelley Memorial House and in Warsaw she assisted with an exhibition at the newly restored Royal Castle. While abroad, she also lectured in Lima, Madrid and Tel Aviv.

In the early 1990’s while bringing up a young family and beginning her lecturing career in England, Gail studied for a Diploma of Fine Art at Colchester School of Art. Gail had always painted and drawn, but her enthusiasm for artistic expression was re-ignited when living in Israel in the late 1980’s. 

She exhibits widely, sells her work and welcomes commissions.

Gail was recently honoured with the Encomienda de Isabel la Católica, by HM the King of Spain, for promoting Spanish art and culture through lectures and study tours to the British in the UK and abroad.
