Artist George Gale

"George Gale was born in Nottingham in 1960 and enjoyed a happy family childhood in a small Nottinghamshire village. His father, Rex, worked at the famous Nottingham Raleigh bicycle factory and was a talented artist who inspired his son to follow a similar path. At school, George Gale’s only real interest was in art classes and it was a natural progression for him on leaving school to attend art college.On leaving college during the late 1970s, at the time of the miners’ strikes and the three-day working week, George Gale had no option but to put away his painting palette and find work, just as his father had done before him. From there he held many varied jobs including working for an airline, in a graphic design studio and as a multiplex cinema manager, to name but a few. In his heart, however, he never forgot his first love and now considers himself very fortunate to have spent the last ten years working as a freelance artist. His only regret is that his father never lived to see him realise his dream.George Gale’s art career ranges now from designing greetings cards to painting 20ft murals, but he concentrates particularly on his fine art animal creations. He describe his working day as follows:“I am both lucky and unlucky to have my studio at home. To achieve anything worthwhile means I have to be disciplined in putting aside home comforts and domestic distractions. I try always to be at work by 9am and get involved in the painting immediately. With Radio 4 as my companion, I then work solidly until around 1pm. Lunchtime with my wife is a luxury I never take for granted. Afterwards we may sometimes take a walk together or even venture to the local gym for some exercise to help clear my mind and provide the energy to set to work again. Late in the afternoon, while playing music - the style dictated by my mood or the subject matter of my work - I’ll pick up again until into the evening. Evenings are usually spent relaxing and dining in the company of my wife. What more could a man ask?”"
