was born May 24, 1961 in Detroit, Michigan. She moved
to Chicago in 1988 and pursued studies in painting, architectural
history, and photography.
Gail's paintings pursue narratives of relationship, and trust,
and passionately explore the struggle between human desires
and the order of nature.
Influenced by the elegant strength of Anthony Van Dyck and the
melancholic mystery of the late 19th century French and Belgian
Symbolists, her expression is rooted in compelling realism,
and branches seductively into the realms of possibility.
Gail was the First Prize winner of the 2002 International Juried
Online Symbolist Art Show "The Dreamer and the Dreamed".
