Taking Steps for CCFA

It was a wonderful afternoon as hundreds gathered for the “Take Steps for  CCFA” annual 5k run/walk. Patients and family members along with friends raised money to help find a cure for Crohn’s and UC. My sister being a patient I donated my time to capture images of the event while she walked! Young and old crossed the finish line with happy smiles on their faces knowing they had made a difference…click here to see Vol 1click here to see Vol 2.

Smooth Sailing

It’s been a long hard road for my good friend and client, Shan Coleman. Like many of us, a struggling artist trying to become an overnight success, Shan has worked diligently to create his first masterpiece “Smooth Sailing”. I am honored that Shan has used some of my images on his CD and in his promo pieces. Shan is a talented reggae artist who recorded his first single CD in Jamica, his home. You can pick up his first release at Gail Ann Studio & Gallery for $5.oo. Or visit his website at


Fun at Seattle Center

I was wandering around Seattle Center leading a Smug Mug group and teaching them how to use the “Lensbaby” when my little friend yelled out to me “Hey Gail Ann, can you take my picture!”  How could I say no? Henry and his brother and his cousin had just gotten off the duck ride, eaten dinner and were on their way to watch the fountain so I grabbed just a few quick shots and Henry was tickled to death. He may have embarrassed mom and grandma but it was worth it! All ya gotta do is ask! Cute eh?



Lesley recently finished leading a small group of women in a workshop designed to help us clear our minds and move forward. (See images here) And now she will be conducting a workshop based on the results of over 100 interviews with  men who shared insights into the male psyche with her. “MenVision” will take place on Solar Eclipse Sunday, July 11, 2010 at Volunteer Park Art Circle across from the museum starting at 7:30pm. Suggested donation of $10-$100. Find out more at
