Gail Ojeda Duggan is a painter and illustrator with a heart for social themes, people, and politics. Her work is influenced by the spiritual and emotional impact of social issues on society and her belief that personality is found in the spirit, not in the image of a person. Created with a layering effect, her oil paintings are a balance between what is seen and what is felt. Through her work, her objective and desire are to capture the spirit of her subjects, and to emotionally connect with viewers on sensitive themes. The most recent subjects of her latest works are of generation Z after 2020, and the impact of political leaders on the world.
She has illustrated for several magazines and institutions such as The New Yorker and The United Nations, and has exhibited in galleries in New York City and in San Antonio, Texas. Gail Ojeda Duggan holds an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York where she started her career, and currently lives in San Antonio, Texas.
