    Gail Fulton-Ross is an artist with a capital A. She paints, sculpts, writes, and acts, and would sing if she could. Knowing as a very young child that she would be an artist “when she grew up,” Gail’s parents had to hide her coloring books in order to get her to go out and play. But as she points out life doesn’t always go in the direction you have chosen for yourself. Married and a mother by the time she was seventeen Gail powerfully describes the difficult challenge of balancing an unquenchable thirst to produce Art with an equally powerful need to be “a good mother, wife, daughter, student etc.” When Gail says that she has the “richness of being,” she is right.
