Born and raised in New York City, Gail Anderson's love of graphic design ignited as a child when, at an early age, she began making magazines featuring The Jackson Five and the cast of The Partridge Family. In 1984, with the encouragement of a high school art teacher, Anderson graduated from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan with a BFA in graphic design.

Anderson's career as a professional artist began with a brief stint designing covers for Vintage Books. From that work, she moved into magazine publishing—a role for which her childhood hobby prepared her well. For more than fourteen years, Anderson worked for Rolling Stone, becoming senior art director and establishing her trademark whimsical style.
