Gail Pederson

Gail recently re-entered the world of painting. She spent her childhood coloring in any coloring book she could find, along with free-handing her favorite themes of dogs, clouds, trees, fields and flowers. In high school, she received a small art scholarship and completed her first year of college as an art major. She put her pursuit of art aside and went on to obtain a BA degree in Business Administration and an MS degree in Environmental Studies.

Growing up in Southern California, Gail took her first trip to Colorado in the 80’s. Driving through Colorado, Boulder and along the Peak to Peak Highway to Estes Park, she fell in love with the mountains, aspens, and everything Colorado!

Gail started her career in California as a Park Ranger but moved into the world of sports, working for the Angels Major League Baseball Team and then with the Orange County Sports Association. In 1994, her dream to move to Colorado came true, and she and her husband moved to Boulder where she enjoyed a 20+ year career at the University of Colorado, recently retiring as the Athletic Department Chief of Staff and Director of the Ralphie Live Mascot Program.

She was called back to her love of the environment recently working with The Nature Conservancy in Boulder. Her desire to paint brought her to explore new mediums in the field of mixed media and abstract art.

Her love of mountains, aspens and dogs are the main inspirations for her recent work. She has been on the Board of Directors with the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and hopes to sell her work to benefit the organization and animal rescue.
