Murrells Inlet, SC
Gail Baillargeon is a lifetime paper artist. She sculpts with recycled paper that she has made back to pulp. Her sculptures air dry and are painted with leftover house paints. She was a recycle artist long before it was popular.
She began working with paper very young and got hooked on sculpting after searching for a fictional piece by Michael Angelo from the book "From The Mixed-up Files Of Basil E. Frankweiler" by E. L. Kongisburg.
Other that high school art classes, Gail is self taught. Her medium is unique, she uses some techniques from clay sculpting but mostly it is fly by the seat of your pants depending on the piece she is working on.
Gail has had her work carried at several galleries along the Grand Strand and has been a member of Seacoast Artist Guild and Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild in the past.
She takes her art seriously but her art is not serious. She work mostly with nature and environment subjects loving the beautiful colors found all around us.
