Sybil Gibson (1908 - 1995)

Sybil Gibson was college educated, an elementary school teacher, mother of one daughter, interested in real estate and the financial markets. In November, 1963 at the age of 55, she became enchanted with a piece of gift wrapping paper in a downtown Miami, FL. store. When she picked up a brush to create her own wrapping paper with materials at hand - tempera and brown grocery bags she became totally seized with a compulsion to paint which lasted three decades.

Sybil Gibson was a blithe spirit. She had no cause to espouse, no avante guarde puzzles to explain. Her work was an hones and passionate escape from daily realities and responsibilities to a place of happiness, beauty, sensitivity and compete Freedom. Her colors - both lively and subtle, charming naivete, and unlimited imagination bring joy to the eye.

Critics of Gibson's work have compared it to that of Matisse, Renoir, Milton Avery, and Odilon Redon.

The Estate Sybil Gibson is represented by Woodward Gallery, NYC.
