Gale Whitman studied biology and art at Hastings College, Nebraska and earned a masters in medical illustration from Colorado State University. After a decade working as a medical illustrator she paused to start a family and shifted to more expressive art. She illustrated a children's book The Man From Space, self-published with the author in 2012, and co-created Good Day: Poetry and Images for Seasons of Optimism, self-published with the poet in 2014.
Gale specializes in murals for the City's Art in Public Places program and has also painted many privately commissioned murals, including the two-story "Lolli-poppies" mural for FirstBank in Old Town Fort Collins.
In her art, Gale draws inspiration from nature and the human spirit. Besides mural-ing, she enjoys taking on commissions, 'up-cycling' materials and products, and experimenting with abstract art.
