Gail has painted and drawn since childhood.  At Oxford she did graphic illustrations for student publications, and designed costumes for plays.  Israeli artist Victor Lelouche inspired her to apply for an art school training, and she studied for a Diploma at Colchester School of Art in the early 1990’s.  Since then she has painted, made prints and exhibited and sold widely, and her works are in private collections in England, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the USA and Switzerland.

Gail paints bold colourful landscapes and townscapes which can verge on the semi-abstract, and she also paints dogs (especially whippets and greyhounds), vegetables, garden scenes and also sketches in pen and ink.  The Mediterranean inspires her light and colour.  She paints, usually on board rather than on canvas, in acrylic and in oils, but has always liked mixed media, including collage, acrylic, pastel and ink.  Her works are for sale.

Gail has had one-man shows at the Lichfield Festival, the Digby Gallery, Colchester, Doolittles’ Gallery, Coggeshall, Bogeners Gallery, Harwich and Head Street Gallery, Halstead. She has exhibited in “Art for Youth UK” at the Mall Galleries, the Hunter Gallery in Long Melford, Gainsborough’s House in Sudbury, Easthorpe Church exhibitions as well as the Mansion House, Christies’, and Horton Priory in Kent. Gail is a regular contributor to East Anglian exhibitions. She has particpated in  Colchester and Tendring Open Studios, and the Eastern Open. Her paintings have been included in Colchester Art Society Exhibitions in the Digby Gallery, the Hay Gallery, Colchester Institute, the Art Cafe, Colchester, and Colchester Library, and recently in the Friends of Essex Churches exhibition at Layer Marney Towers. Gail is a member of Coggeshall Art Group, Colchester Art Society and of Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop.
