Gail Reid


Born in the UK, Gail Reid studied maths at Bristol University, and stayed for 27 years. A career in IT consultancy funded the freedom to study and practise drawing, painting, and printmaking without the pressure of having to earn a living from them. After evening classes in etching and life drawing at Bristol Folk House, she took a post0-graduate diploma in printmaking at the University of the West of England, and later returned to printmaking at the Spike Island Print Studio. There she was guided by the late Peter Reddick on the Vandercook proofing press (on which many of my linocuts were subsequently editioned).

During her 3 years living in Dubai (2014-2017), she laid the foundations for becoming a professional artist. She now manages her online presence (website and social media) directly from her Bristol studio.
