In Gail Browne's life-long journey as an artist, printmaking has been central to her means of expression. Most important to her vision is that printmaking affords her the opportunity to distill the imagery into its most iconic form. Unlike the willing surface of a painting, the printmaking process can be explored through various means: paper as surface or visual texture, and color, or black and white, as a powerful influence to change the entire dynamic of the print.
Gail's first memory of making art was at the age of four, when she would demonstrate to her family the visions in her mind's eye through her drawings. As a printmaker, she has the opportunity to expand and explore the drawing process, and to work at refining the expression of her subjects.
Having lived in Provincetown for fifty years, Gail has witnessed enormous changes to the living environment and she still looks to the sea for inspiration in the natural world and its juxtaposition to the evidence of man.
Gail received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and studied with Henry Hensche at the Cape Cod School of Art. She has won awards for her work, been in numerous shows, and operated her own gallery for ten years.
