Inspired by my first drawing teacher at the UW, Ann Gale. See more here or here.
"Ann Gale lives in Seattle, Washington, where she teaches painting at the University of Washington. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from Yale University in 1991. Her work has been displayed in galleries across the country and she has won numerous awards, including a 1996 WESTAF/NEA Fellowship."
