Gail Davidson is a Hawke’s Bay artist who has been painting for more than 10 years now. She paints humorous incidents or stories as they unfold drawn from this wonderful world of ours as she tends to perceive it. Working mainly with acrylics, she loves to use bright bold colours.
“I am as far from being a realistic painter as the sun is from the moon with my characters finding their shape to suit the theme. I like my paintings to speak for themselves by tempting the viewer into a discussion, a smile, or a chuckle.
Inspired by a sense of fun and humour that’s deeply ingrained from my upbringing where seeing the funny side of life was encouraged. However nothing inspires me more than the exhilaration of being so deeply involved in a painting that I lose myself to time and surroundings. A busy or stressful day can fly out the window when I walk into the art room and the paint brush hits the canvas.” Gail Davidson
