A big welcome to our drawing teacher, Gail!
Gail has lived in Wallsend for 30 years with her husband & 5 children.
Gail completed her Fine Arts Diploma at Hunter Street TAFE, graduating from Newcastle University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, then with an Honours degree in 2011.
Her work is inspired by an interest and love for people & community.
Gail works in painting, drawing & textiles. These disciplines often cross over producing interesting hybrid art works of colour, image & stitch.
The essence of Gail’s art practice is acknowledging people’s lives, validating & empathising with their experiences. She finds teaching & exhibiting rewarding as she is able to connect with the community.
Gail has exhibited widely, she has shown her art within:
- John Hunter Arts & Health programs
- Wallsend Library
- Watt Space Newcastle
- Newcastle Art Space
- Art Systems Wickham
- Maitland Regional Gallery
