Gail Stokes Hayward

Gail has spent a lifetime observing and reproducing images of creatures both real and imagined.


Now living in the Glasbury on Wye area, Gail takes inspiration from her surroundings, in particular the creatures that inhabit the fields, gardens and hedgerows.


Using fine wire, Gail endeavours to achieve a combination of line and form with an economy of means. The effect is, as if she has charmed her drawings off the page and into the three-dimensional, thus suggesting a physical presence.


Often anthropomorphic in character, the simplicity of the linear form enhances and captures the essence of the subject.
