Gail Shine

A Hastings-based mostly self-taught artist, Gail Shine specialises in landscape oil paintings and graphite pencil drawings. For Gail, a mother of three young children, who is working full time, drawing and painting is her time out from her busy life.

Gail has been painting and drawing since her early teens, exhibiting work throughout her college years. It was at college that she developed her love of oils, when encouraged by her art teacher at the time to give them a try. Her passion is drawing and painting landscapes and seascapes, and occasionally animals and flowers. She loves capturing the reality of her subjects in either of her chosen mediums.

Creating art has always been a passion of Gail’s. Combined with her interest in the rural lifestyle, the beach and flowers, supply her with endless inspiration.
