Biography:
 Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Gail spent her formative years in upstate New York with an avid interest in art since her teens at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, NY. She attended Boston University, and later moved to Canada to take courses at Toronto's Central Technical School and Ontario College of Art in preparation for admission into University of Toronto's Medical Illustration Degree Program.

Marriage altered her plans in Toronto and brought Gail and her husband to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where she furthered her art education at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. Although she continued drawing and painting, her main focus became the creation of their family's successful organic farm and market business. With the sale of the family business in 2001, and her two children grown, Gail returned to her first passion and has been painting full time since.

Gail works mainly in acrylics and oils on canvas, as well as watercolor and pastels. Considered a leader in her field, Gail pushes the limits of contemporary landscape with her powerful and compelling pieces. Confident stroke and bold, color saturated palette often define her acrylics and oils, whereas her work in pastels is mostly seen in large, sensitively rendered life drawings.

Gail paints intuitively, often referencing imagery inspired by her farming life, her proximity to Vancouver Island's impressive coastline, wildflower filled Rocky Mountain landscapes, favorite fly fishing locations,and her love for all things growing.

A recent trip to Italy afforded time to paint plein aire in Tuscany, Florence and Venice. And in May 2012, a two week plein aire painting trip to southern Spain continued to broaden her palette.

"I feel privileged to have so much to paint - such beauty and rich, grounded experiences to draw from. I follow my brush . . . and taste the color."

An active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists since 2003, Gail's award-winning work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions as well as solo shows in British Columbia and Alberta, and can be found in private collections internationally.

In March 2006, Gail achieved AFCA Signature Status in The Federation of Canadian Artists.

She is proud to have her work mainly represented by Mountain Galleries three locations, as well as other galleries listed below:
