"Is that really watercolor?" is the question that people ask when first seeing Gail Faulkner's paintings.
What comes to mind when most people envision watercolor are pale, loose washes of color, not the
controlled detail of Gail Faulkner's realistic still lifes.
"Art has always played a role in my life in some capacity, but it wasn't until recent years that I've been
able to fully devote myselft to my painting. I picked up a watercolor brush and never put it down.
I love the challenge of detail and realism, and enjoy painting the things that surround me in my life
and in nature. My paintings have been described as vibrant and having depth. My goal has never
been to make a statement with my art, but simply to paint objects that I find beautiful and that will
give my viewers the same pleasure."
Following a career in the medical field, Gail attended the Philadelphia College of Art and the Sanski Art
Center in Haddonfield, New Jersey. Her work has received numerous awards and can be found in
collections across the country.
Gail Faulkner's paintings are available at the Trowbridge Gallery (see links) or by appointment.
