Gail Winbury born in Chicago, lived her adult life in New Jersey and Massachusetts. Her studio is in East Orange, New Jersey. Despite Winbury’s lifetime commitment to creating and studying art, she selected a different career path. However, this successful psychologist with a flourishing psychotherapy practice, ultimately became a professional artist. She studied painting for fifteen years with Chinese American artist Dorothy Yung, at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, with Joan Snyder and in Europe.
Lilly Wei, international art critic and journalist writes: “Winbury produces a richly diverse, and assured body of work. She is a gifted colorist… Experimenting is easy for her, integral to her approach to painting, which depends upon intuition as well as more calculated decisions. She continues to find new ways to animate her paintings, to give them emotional edge. Winbury’s art espouses themes that are psychological and philosophical, exploring states of being, probing the big questions. Each of her paintings…holds her essential premise, founded on uncertainty and intangible longings, on the complexity of the human condition. Finding means to express this is her quest, one that is always in progress. “
