Gail Zwerling is a painter and portrait artist who embraces painting as a celebration of life. She is particularly drawn to figures and fashion. She is excited by the way people express their self-identity and exuberance for living through the way they dress and present themselves to the world. Gail positions her subjects in bold poses and captures a tactile sense of their colorful attire. Working in oils, her painted surfaces vary in engaging ways, with thick, dramatic strokes playing off against delicate brushwork.
Gail is similarly drawn to the way flowers capture the beauty of the world. She often uses flowers as portrait subjects in their own right.
