Gail Walsh Swanson
Gail Walsh Swanson began her formal training in Botanical drawing and painting at the Ringling School of Art and Design under the tutelage of O.M Braida.
Creating canvas compositions of living things in natural environments has been a joy and marvelous meditative experience. The interplay of light, and color and
shadow never cease to amaze me. I am continually learning from and amazed by the natural world. Environmental awareness and preservation have become my
ardent pursuit as reflected in my art. Exploring various art mediums is great fun, and the resultant creations are often very personally rewarding. I only hope that my art brings pleasure and delight to others. It has been my joy!
