Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Gail grew up in the Northfield area of the city. Holding a keen interest in music, she trained in Flute and Piano, entering higher education with plans for a career on this path before being diagnosed with a spinal tumour. While nerve damage and ill health affected her ability to play, she eventually regained her health and moved on to study the social sciences before graduating with a Master of Arts in Sociology from the University of Aberdeen.
Gail worked in Sales Management before moving and settling in Montrose, where she enjoyed family life as a wife and mother of two. It was during this time that Gail rediscovered and embraced her creative side once again. With a passion for art now competing with her love of music, Gail began developing creatively as an artist, initially using her preferred medium of acrylic.
Working from her home studio, Gail spent much of the 2020 covid period working on a series of paintings of coastal landscapes. She is a member of Visual Art Scotland, The Scottish Artists Union and an active member of United Artspace. She continues to develop her own unique style and was delighted to receive a 2021 VACMA award in the Emerging Artist category.
Gails works can currently be found in private collections in Europe and the USA.
