About Gail Theis

 
 
  • Biography
    I studied illustration and graphic design in New York and London. I have recently completed a two year Diploma  in portraiture at Heatherleys School of Art and am in my first year of an MFA at UAL Wimbledon.

    My springboard into fine art was portraiture.

    Being a keen gardener, I also found much inspiration from nature and began to paint landscapes and plants/flowers.

    My paintings are built up through a series of layers of oil paint/glazes. I love working from life but knowing how precious most sitters time is I also take a series of photos so I can continue to work on backgrounds or patterns once the sitting is over.

    If i'm working on paintings other than portraits by the time I have finished one piece I have already got an idea for the next one. I take photos wherever I go for reference, cameras are the modern day sketch book. I always like to be prepared to take a few snaps to start the process.
