Gail Prussky was born a long time ago, around the same time that Louis Pasteur was playing with milk.

 

She studied art in university, and then turned around and went to work as an addiction therapist, two VERY different disciplines that clearly demonstrate just how confused Gail's sensibilities have been.

 

Born and raised in Toronto, Gail moved to twenty-three beautiful acres in the country two years ago, where she currently lives with her husband and her two dogs: a Great Dane and an English Mastiff. (Gail lives LARGE.)

 

These days, when Gail isn't wandering through the woods, flipping over flat rocks and examining the creatures underneath, she's painting and drawing. Her work is a reflection of her inner life. It isn't pretty most of the time, but making art keeps the demons at bay.

 

Gail paints on canvas, wood and fabric, and also works in pen and ink, as well as pastel.

She has exhibited her art in galleries in Toronto; currently, her work can be seen at Dragonfly Arts in Orangeville.

 

In 2012, Gail was in a group show at the Bartlett Gallery in the Alton Mill, Alton, Ontario, and also showed her paintings with the Silvercreek Arts group, in Caledon, Ontario. The Strata Gallery in Elora, Ontario, is now exhibiting some of her ink drawings, and there will be a book of Gail's ink drawings sometime in the future...

 

She's a member of the Orangeville Artists Group, and her paintings are in many private collections.
