Gillian was born in Glasgow and pursued a career in medicine until retirement. Both during her working life and since retiral she attended courses at Glasgow School of Art and has painted with several tutors in France, Italy and USA.

Although she still prefers watercolour for painting flowers, most of her work is now in oils.
In 2005 she won the Gregor Ian Smith Award from Bearsden Art Club.
In 2007 she was elected an Artist member of The Glasgow Society of Women Artists.
