Gill, was born in Leamington Spa, but now lives in the beautiful market town of Warwick. Although she enjoyed drawing as a child, she gave in to her love of cookery, and chose a career in the food industry, specialising in sugarcraft. An artist friend gave her one art lesson 10 years ago, and a love for painting was rekindled. She has been painting ever since, trying different mediums, and has developed a love of mixed media, using texture and bright colours in many of her paintings. The journey continues as she experiments with different mediums and textures.
