Gail Williams is a native of Western New York State. She has lived in San Francisco, New York and Atlanta, finally settling in the mountains of beautiful western North Carolina near Asheville.

As a contemporary painter working in acrylics and mixed media , she is influenced by her life’s experiences and colorful interpretation of them. Though her media and themes are varied, all reflect her love for deep, saturated and contrasted colors.

As a Jewelry Artist, Gail is drawn to free form and natural shapes. Her handcrafted, rustic designs represent her love of the Mountains and the natural environment she lives in.

Gail has exhibited through out the South East and in Arizona. Her paintings are held in private collections in the US and England.

She ives with her husband John , two dogs Danny, and Zeke and her 25 year old parrot , Cairo.
