A native of Pretoria, South Africa, Gail first learned of heraldry at the Bureau of Heraldry in Pretoria where she worked as an artist. Her knowledge of Coats of Arms was minimal but she soon learned and found the entire process fascinating. Gail has executed numerous Coats of Arms for various groups or private individuals both in the US and abroad. Some of her work is on display in South Africa, in both Western and Eastern Washington, California, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Germany and Thailand.
