Gail was born and raised in the small northeastern town of Elk Point, Alberta. She spent her youth on a dairy farm in that extraordinary Lakeland country.
Small farms, cattle, harvest time and the strong clear basics of country living permeate Gail's paintings. The incredible lakes and mountains of Alberta have further expanded her horizons.
Gail began seriously pursuing her career as an artist by enrolling in classes at the University of Alberta, Continuing Education and the Edmonton Art Gallery. She has since completed watercolor studies under nationally established artists such as Evangeline Munns, Brian Ateyok and Brent Heighton.
Gail is influenced by courses taken from American instructors, Tom Lynch, Timothy Clark and Judy Betts. She is widely traveled and when abroad, promotes the exemplary Canadian lifestyle we are privileged to enjoy.
