Imagination is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Gail’s work.
She creates in many media, in both two and three dimensions. Nature’s influences, and the journey of the soul can be seen in her work as she blends materials and motifs from many cultures and the natural world.
“Art is my passion and the core of my creative life. I particularly enjoy working in mixed media, using fiber, textiles, papers and objects from nature. I like the piece to unfold organically, playing with what I’m doing and allowing whatever wants to happen, to happen.”
Gail was born in Sturgis, MI. She became a nurse, married and raised two sons. After her youngest graduated from high school she moved to Colorado and completed a B.S. degree in Human Services. Living in the Colorado foothills allowed her love of nature and her passion for art to become the focal point of her life.
Gail returned to Michigan area to be near her children and grandchildren, and now lives and works in the Three Rivers Area.
Gail Walters is one of the Guild’s three original incorporators, with Becky Hackenberg and Christine Hartzell, in 2009.
