Gail is a lifelong resident of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. From childhood her interests revolved around her love of our natural environment and art.
Gail works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil and wood. Her interest in plein air painting (painting on location outdoors), has helped her combine three of the things in life that she enjoys most - painting, birdwatching, and spending time in our natural world.
Gail has won numerous awards and entry into juried exhibits with both her paintings and wood sculptures some of which include: Northern Exposure, Wonders in Wood, The North American Wildfowl Carving Championship, The International Woodcarving Congress, The Great Lakes Showcase, The Copper Country Gallery Exhibition, The Ward Foundation World Bird Carving Competition, The Richeson 75 Animals, Birds and Wildlife Competition and The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s prestigious Birds in Art exhibit.
Her work appears in private collections throughout the world, in the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis IN, and in the book The Weekend Crafter Woodcarving by John Hiller published by Lark Books.
