Gail Miller, who creates original contemporary artwork in the attic bedroom of her sleepy seaside home in Bridlington UK, was recently asked to ship 5 of her paintings to Bahrain for an art exhibition, in aid of the country's needy women and children, after her auctions were spotted on eBay.
The Palm Association was set up in the latter half of 2000. Its aims are to raise funds in order to offer support to Bahraini women and children in financial distress. It was the charity's chairperson, a Mrs Shaheen who found and bought Gail's work for the exhibition she was organising. The exhibition, due to open in September, will bring together artists' work from all around the world in one place.
Gail has become used to sending her artwork all over the world. The 'stay at home Mum' hasn’t looked back since she stumbled upon eBay auction site by accident four years ago. It’s hard to believe that before this she hadn’t even picked up a paint brush since college. Now though selling via the Internet has given her the career in art she'd always dreamed of. Listing her vibrant original artwork under the eBay ID paint_till_you_faint Gail often works 18 hours a day to fulfil orders.
"Being able to create art, which I love to do, and get paid for it is a dream come true", says Gail. "This time though, the sale of my paintings will be helping people less fortunate than myself, and this gives me a great deal of satisfaction."
Selling online has enabled Gail to have greater quality of life, being in total control of scheduling her work around family life. She believes the Internet is a truly great thing. “I can think of no other way I could be selling my paintings all over the world ....and helping others at the same time.
