In 2013, Gail had an accident that left her with a spinal cord injury. With 4 weeks at Northside Hospital and 6 weeks in the Shepherd Center and intense rehabilitation ever since, she has continued to paint and inspire everyone she has met along the way, with husband and fellow artist Tom providing support since the beginning. Serenbe and the Art Farm are excited to partner with Help Hope Live to exhibit artworks in Grange Hall by both Tom and Gail, all of which will be up for auction on GiveSmart to support the necessary home accessibility renovations to their house. These improvements provide Gail with a safe space for continual recovery after her early 2018 surgery for years to come.
