Gail re-entered the world of painting a few years ago. She spent her childhood coloring in any coloring book she could find, along with free-handing her favorite themes of dogs, clouds, trees and flowers.
In high school, she received an art scholarship and completed her first year of college as an art major. She put her pursuit of art aside and went on to obtain a degree in Business and a Graduate Degree in Environmental Studies.
While a Park Ranger in California, she visited Colorado and fell in love with the mountains, aspens and specifically Boulder. She moved into the world of Athletics working in Major League Baseball and the Orange County Sports Association. But, in 1994 her dream to move to Colorado came true and she and her husband moved to Boulder where she enjoyed a 20+ year career in the Athletic Department at the University of Colorado.
Now, with The Nature Conservancy in Boulder, she has been called back to her desire to create and has begun to explore new mediums in the field of abstract art and zen painting. She has taken on-line and in-person courses from Jodi Ohl, Tracey Verdugo and Boulder’s Lael Har.
Her love of aspens are the main feature of her recent work.
She shows her art at Boulder’s RGallery, Art at the Center in Nederland and currently has a piece at the Boulder Museum.
She is a member of the Boulder Art Association and the Boulder County Arts Alliance. She is on the Board of the Boulder Humane Society and hopes to sell her work to benefit the organization for animal rescue efforts.
