Gale specializes in wearable art and Dada inspired collage art-books, and fine art prints. "Her [Gale’s] collages are invitations to dance, sing and dream in locations recreated from her amazing viewpoint. Her collage techniques, color and movement of forms all add up to a unique profile of living places." -Carol Bishop, artist
