Gail Blima

Artist member since 2020
Toronto, Ontario

Gail is a creative innovator who has explored photography, representational art and mixed media. She is a graduate of The International Academy of Merchandising and Design in Interior Design. At school, the one class Gail truly excelled at and enjoyed was art. First introduced to art at a young age by her father, he taught her about shading, perspective and landscape compositions. By layering vibrant acrylic accents over a collage base and incorporating the written word, Gail connects the audience to cultural references that are directed by pop culture. They are ironic, humorous and powerful. Gail is a full time artist living and exhibiting in Toronto and her works are held in private collections in Toronto, Montreal, NYC and Hangzhou-China.

Describe your home in 3 words

Warm, inviting, and me (it's me) my taste, my colour palette, my art choices.

Favourite musical artist / band right now

My favourite musical artist is Sting, from his days in The Police to his solo career I have been a huge fan since the 80's. I've seen him in Montreal, Toronto, New York, with Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, The Police and solo. Love Love Love

What do you listen to when you work?

I listen to the TV, I'm a netflix addict and watch one episode after another. I don't actually watch as much as I listen, but I love marathoning shows.

What kind of artwork do you have in your home?

I have many different styles of art in my home. Two of my favourites are from Ingrid Harrison, one is a spring scene and the other is winter. I have many pieces from artists I've met at doing shows. I also have a few of my own pieces hanging, 3 to be exact.
