My love of art and creating started the second time I had 4th grade when I was asked to design and create the classroom bulletin boards for the year. As my teacher, Mrs. Fisher said “ Nana Gail already knows the work” I love Mrs. Fisher wherever you are.
I went on to graduate from high school with art honors. My art teacher in high school got me a job with Samuel Kirk and Sons as a silver engraver. While there I worked in the design room with their small animal series. From founder to stamping the name on the bottom. After my daughter was born I studied Ceramics/Pottery at Towson State University
I attended watercolor classes with Dr. Morris Green and Fritz Briggs and finally graduated from the world-renowned Atelier...The Schuler School of Fine Art.
I have taught...
throwing on the wheel for Baltimore City Bureau of Recreation.
Drawing and painting at the RAL and the TAP
Landscape panting at the Heathsville Tavern (while I was also a prep cook and server there)
Drawing at Baltimore Public Library
and also individual drawing lessons
I have shown at galleries and shows in Maryland and Virginia and have won several awards for my work.
I am the founder and organizer of the Montebello Plein Air Painters and have organized several events for the Charcoal Club of Baltimore
I currently still work for our business. Lauer Furniture Restoration as manager ( don’t tell my husband) and I rush and cane the chair seats.
