Gail Bauman has been an educator for over 40 years. Her love of teaching and art go hand-in-hand
starting from an early age. She began oil painting at the age of seven at the Paintin’ Place Studio in Hollywood, FL,
where she taught classes during her teenage years. Gail majored in art and teaching at FSU, but found little time
for her own art making after graduation as she went into teaching full time. Ten years ago she returned to painting,
especially watercolor. Gail is a member of the Tallahassee Watercolor Society.
