Gail creates metal sculpture from a single sheet of steel. She explores
light metal's properties so pieces seem to bounce, fly, or dance in the breeze.
“I love the curl as strips of metal become wild hair or a flying mane. I am
awed as a turn of a metal head creates an intimate moment between lovers or
parent and child.” Gail's work is featured in galleries nationwide and
internationally through online businesses.
