Gail excelled at art at school winning a number of prestigious prizes however for family reasons was unable to go on to art college much to the frustration of her art teachers. Later in life, when in Glasgow she studied art and took up painting again via evening classes at Glasgow School of Art. She then came under the professional eye of established art lecturer and painter George Birrell and began to paint for commissions and in a small number of galleries.
Gail’s style has changed in recent times and she now finds herself in demand with gallery exhibitions throughout the UK, although these are still limited in number as her output and painstaking approach limits the availability of her work.
She paints in oils and acrylics finding inspiration from the late Mary Fedden RA, Christian Hook, and Scottish contemporary painter Jack Morrocco.
