GILLIAN GIBSON - ABOUT

Contact: Email

Based in the Scottish Highlands, I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2010. My art practice is multi-disciplinary and I draw inspiration from all aspects of the environment. I work intuitively in various mediums and styles but I primarily use watercolour, pen and pencil for 2D based work and paper pulp for 3D, using photography as a documentation method. My artwork is influenced by all aspects of the environment - nature, landscape, geology, archaeology, artifacts, sense of place and observations. I aim to capture a sense of place, memory and time while evoking environmental connection and importance. During the day I work in conservation, with previous posts including working as a Seasonal Ranger in Dundee and Isle of Eigg. I strongly believe in using art as a method to inspire and connect people to nature and to also raise environmental awareness.
