In St. John's, Shipwreck Shop in Heritage Quay has the full range of her prints and books, as do Dockyard Pottery in Nelson’s Dockyard and Harmony Hall in Brown’s Bay.

Gilly is a passionate traveller and has visited the region extensively, painting local scenes and capturing the colours and essence of Caribbean life on paper and on canvas. Her extensive collection of paintings and printed images features aspects of various Caribbean islands such as Antigua & Barbuda, Anguilla, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Kitts & Nevis, Montserrat and the USVI. Search by subject matter or location.

Gilly's high-quality prints are available mounted with matts in standard frame sizes 5x7", 11x14", 10x20" and 16x20. Unmounted prints are available upon request.

Her long-awaited Art Gallery is now open. It showcases original art by Gilly (watercolour, pen & ink and acrylic) in styles ranging from realist & figurative to abstract & cartoons, on paper, wood & canvas. High-quality fine-art postcards,and greetings cards featuring Gilly’s art are also available. The subjects of Gilly’s art are equally wide-ranging, although most of her inspiration is derived form the Caribbean. In particular, she likes anything from nature – including nudes. She also specializes in pet portraits, particularly of dogs and cats which she paints from high res photos supplied by the pets’ owners. Commissions are another option

Her original paintings very in size from 4x6" to 24x36", but everything can travel in your suitcase, as the larger canvases can be easily detached from their stretchers and rolled and the watercolours, black & white sketches and canvas on board have removable frames and all have re-sealable protective coverings. However, shipping by FedEx International is also a possibility.

The Art Gallery is open from Monday to Friday from 9am until 1 o’clock or by appointment. Just call her on +1 268 464 6084 or +1 268 461 0761 – or email her on
