Gillian’s talent with a paintbrush is phenomenal. She has painted some of the biggest names in sport and we may be biased, but her images of the stars of rugby league are the best. She’s painted legends like Alex Murphy and Brian Bevan, adding her USP of a black back drop to make the images stand out with great vibrancy. But what puts this woman in our League of Outstanding Women is her support of charitable causes with her talent. She has painted our Player of the Year winners Jenny Welsby and Jodie Cunningham, and donated her brilliant Jamie Peacock painting to Her Rugby League’s Pat Price Project which helped send Batley Bulldogs Girls team on tour to Australia. We think Gillian is a credit to league and to art.
