Michelle Gibbs

I've been painting and drawing from as far back as I can remember. I'm inspired by what I see and have a particular interest in the sky and the beautiful colours and cloud formations that are created. I love the fact you will only ever see that formation once before it's gone very quickly.

I have taken thousands of photos of sunsets over the years and live near the sea so often run down to the beach with my camera to capture a moment.

I have been lucky enough to have spend time travelling to some amazing places. From the blues and greens of the great barrier reef in Australia, to the orange and reds of the Fijian sunsets, travelling has brought vibrancy and energy into my work. Through the unique combinations of colour and texture I am able to express my experiences and share them in a contemporary and sometimes abstract form. It is my aim to transform my canvas into one filled with energy, inspiration, dedication and light.

I love to work with bright and uplifting colours and was labelled a colourist by by my art tutors. I enjoy playing around with how different combinations work together. I tend to build up multiple glazes to create luminosity allowing light to shine through each glaze.

I am a full time artist as well as a part time art tutor. Painting from a studio at home, I tend to be working on several projects simultaneously, often returning to a piece trying something new and inspiring.

My paintings can be found in private collections both in the UK and internationally.

All my paintings are one-off originals and all come with a certificate of authenticity. I also welcome commissions should you have something specific in mind.
