Gail’s Art Spa
I live in Abbotsford and am a native British Columbian. I graduated high school with art courses. When I started a family at 19, creativity took the form of knitting, crocheting and sewing. My children were homeschooled back in the days when almost no one educated their children at home.
While I worked for 21 years, and again, the art waited. It was when I became ill with chronic migraine headaches that I felt the need to try to bring beauty from pain. I also suffer from PTSD and severe allergies. Painting is a way to channel pain and my mission is to create happy, colourful pictures as a gift to uplift others.
My favourite media are pastel and watercolour soluble pencils and sticks.
Currently, I am making a studio/gallery and have a business for my art called, Gail’s Art Spa. I have a special interest in meeting other artists who struggle with low energy issues and who are isolated due to illness and/or anxiety. In addition, I have donated prints of one of my pictures entitled, Living with PTSD, to therapists specialising in trauma. One is also at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre in Vancouver.
My plan is to continue to find good homes for happy pictures.
