Gail Watford

Fine Art

"As a young girl I was intrigued by imaginary dreamlike images spawned from the stories my mother read to me. Today, I find I am still trying to convey remnants of those "what if" worlds through my independent studies and artistic expressions. I find I always lean toward capturing a mood, emotion or atmosphere through the use of splashes of color- soft and subtle or bright and bold. Having the opportunity to capture glimpses of the world in which we live is a thrilling adventure. Whether it is painting a child asleep, a beautiful mountain lake, or a high plains vista, I easily find the inspiration to reach for my chosen media and begin a new creation."

Gail Watford graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a BSE in Art in 1975. Through the years living in Arkansas, she worked and displayed her art in various venues. In 2006, a move to Wyoming gave her a renewed energy and fresh perspective of working in pastel. Gail's artistic journey continues through independent study and workshops with artists including: Mike Beeman, Terri Lombardi, Patti Andre', Linda Lillegraven, Jeannie Mackenzie and Jim Wilcox. Since showing her pastel work in Wyoming, Gail has received numerous awards and has been accepted as a signature member of the Pastel Society of Colorado. She has been received into the following juried shows since moving to Wyoming:

  • Journeys: Pastel Society of Colorado’s 2015 Signature Members’ Show
  • 2015 RAIL ART SHOW AT DEPOT
  • 2014 ILLINOIS RIVER SALON, Cave Springs, AR
