This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography was written and submitted by the daughter of the artist, July 2009.

Gail Hoeck was a creative thinker who was constantly learning new ways to express her art and to share what she learned with those who came to know her.   She had an ability that most people will never get to experience.  She was an innovator and a leader in her art community.  She wanted to pass on her experiences and talent to others.  She was a free spirit that loved experiencing life.

Gail Maurice Hoeck was born August 18, 1938 in New York City, to Raymond and Eleanore Maurice.  She was the middle of three children, brother Raymond and sister Julie.  She grew up in Montclair, New Jersey, a suburb of New York City. After, graduating from Montclair High School in 1957, she attended Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1960.  In 1964 she attended classes at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts.

During the 1960’s she worked and lived in New York City and Colorado. Working as a fashion illustrator was the beginning of her art career.  She took this time to travel to Europe where she gained inspiration for her artistry.  Constantly learning and absorbing any information she came across during her travels she was getting to know herself.

In 1970 she married family friend Kenneth Hoeck, they settled in New York City. After years of trying for children, she finally gave birth to her only daughter in 1976. In 1979 they moved to New Jersey where she began to participate in art shows and attended art workshops and seminars.  In the late 1980’s she had to put her art career on hold to care for her parents. Her father’s death in 1990 was especially hard for her because he saved her from a blood disorder when she was an infant.  Her mother suffered many strokes and stopped painting in 1988. Gail began a period of self discovery with her daughter. As her daughter I grew up around creativity and learning I was always watching her paint and make things like Halloween costumes and art project for school. I never realized what this meant to me until much later.

In 1992 she moved the family to Arizona where she began her own career in art while still taking care of her mother. Her mother passed away in 1995, so she began to explore the art districts in Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix. While attending art walks and festivals throughout Arizona and New Mexico she absorbed the southwest and loved exploring the state.

1994 she started teaching at the Chandler Community Center and hosted a number of workshops representing the Scottsdale Artist League.  In 2000 she started showing in juried shows.  She won numerous awards from the Arizona Art Alliance.  She was president of the Scottsdale Artist League in 1999. Her art is in numerous private collections across the nation and is currently represented in Red Rock Collections in Sedona.

She was diagnosed with cancer in 2005. She was still working on many pieces of art as well as her autobiography. September 15th 2007 she lost her quiet but spiritual battle with cancer.
