Through the years art has taken me through many years of discovery and fulfilment on professional and personal levels.

As of most artists I drew on everything and as a horse lover from an early age it was horses that filled the pieces of every scrap of paper I could find.  As I grew up I learned to paint with oils and pastels and for many years did animal portraits of  horses and dogs.

Then for several years I turned  to bronze sculpture, the highlight of my bronze years was a life size running horse, when working with the sculptor James Hopfensespuger; that sculpture is standing in Wisconsin.

Now I paint exclusively with Acrylics and gravitate to whatever is special to me, be it a landscape or a particular animal; or something that is sometimes overlooked in our daily lives. I try to depict my subjects as true and honestly as I possibly can .  To reach the viewer and see the response to my work brings me pleasure and a sense of satisfaction and is the ultimate goal  and reward.

Gail's art exhibit will be shown at the Saginaw Charter Township Hall, 4980 Shattuck Road, Saginaw, Michigan, Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., thru September 30, 2021.
