About Gail
Gail (actually, Abigail) Robinson Coppock grew up in the Appalachian
Mountains and Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and followed various career
paths before getting around to doing artwork.

Earning a BA in English from Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia and
an MA in Humanistic Psychology from the University of West Georgia, she
taught literature, reading and mathematics at high schools and colleges in
Virginia, Texas, and Georgia.  She also worked as a inner city case worker
and as a psychologist at a training center for people with developmental
disabilities.

Meanwhile, she married her best friend Dave and they were privileged to
raise  two amazing sons, Austin and Stephen.  During the time when she was
an at-home mom, she began a part-time calligraphy business and
volunteered at the boys' schools and in the community.

In the 1990's Gail began watercolor painting, teaching at The Mansfield Art
Center in Mansfield, Ohio, and getting more into gardening.  Then came
handmade paper making, jewelry beading, Celtic knotwork drawing, and
glass fusing.  Yoga is also a cherished activity.
.
Since Dave's retirement, they have delighted in living in the sunshine and lush
vegetation of Sarasota, Florida.

Gail has exhibited her artwork in gallery shops and juried shows in Ohio,
Georgia, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Florida and has mounted several solo
shows.   

She is known for her attention to detail, which is her way of expressing her
personal philosophy that the wonders of the  universe can be experienced just
as profoundly in the little things as in the grand conceptions.
