Gail Schatz studied ceramics at Laney College and The California College of Arts, Oakland. She studied drawing at City College of San Francisco and Stanford Extension. She’s taught art to adults at South San Francisco Adult Education, and to children in after school programs.
Gail’s current focus is making mixed media pieces using color and texture to unify such disparate elements as fired ceramics, papers, fabrics, beads, glass, ink or paint. Her work is heavily influenced by the colors and textures of the San Mateo Coast where she has lived for more than 30 years. She also enjoys drawing expressive faces.
