Gail Curry

Gail works from her studio in North Shields and also runs a social enterprise gallery, Wild and Free, in Whitley Bay.

She began painting during treatment for post-traumatic stress in 2017. The following year Gail completely lost her speech, so painting became her alternative voice.

​Gail tends to work in series, which can vary in medium and subject, often a response to what is happening to or around her.

"Working as an artist has allowed me to communicate with lots of people I otherwise may not have met. Quite often people connect with my work because it reflects something they've experienced."
