Artist of the Month

May 2019 Artist of the Month

Gail Miller

I have been living in Franklin with my husband, cat and 2 horses for nearly 20 years.  10 years ago, I retired from my job as a medical technologist at Backus Hospital.  This gave me ample time to pursue my creativity and art.  I like to try new ideas with a variety of mediums:  painting with oils, spinning yarn to knit, crochet or weave and weaving with beads to make jewelry or horse bridles.  I usually have 2 or 3 projects in progress at a time; the challenge is finding enough closets and shelves to store all of my supplies!

When I’m not busy with my art, I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking, and riding my horses.

If you would like to contact me, I can be reached through my email at
