"Gerilyn Gaskill is an award winning local artist who has a passion for capturing the beauty of the Delaware coastline and Delmarva landscapes in watercolor, oil and acrylics," says Paula Holloway, education programs director at RAL. "Her interest in art started young in kindergarten and was helped along by her great-grandfather artist August Seiler, who also painted coastal imagery. When she is not painting, she is teaching others to paint."
