Kristin Gibson

Finding perpetual inspiration in organic shapes and hues of fruits, flowers, vegetables, nature, my paintings begin as drawings with my paintbrush. With bold immediacy and working entirely from day-to-day subjects, lines in a layer of wet paint jumpstart a fluent process of color into color, shape into form. Favorite aspects emerge in passages of complementary color, thick impasto mark making and expressive brushwork that sings.

Truth is, I paint the way I cook – intuitively adding a splash of this with a dash of that. Endlessly fascinated by the notion of capturing color from jars of paint with large brushes, and stirring up something fresh on each canvas.

Kristin Gibson paintings invite you to revisit again and again. All the while, renewing a sense of wonder and joy in a painterly rendition of every day objects.

When you bring Kristin’s paintings into your home, you’ll start to notice how sunlight through the kitchen window brightens the bowl of fruit during breakfast or how lovely the stack of books and cup of tea sits on the table. Her work refreshes your awareness of what you may have stopped seeing.

Painting in alla-prima technique, Kristin enjoys most how working in one sitting sparks confident line and brushwork, and spontaneous perspectives on her still life and natural subjects. A boldness and vibrancy that captures the eye of both new and avid collectors.

Kristin Gibson received her BFA in Painting and Surface Design from ECU School of Art and Design in 1990. Early work in textiles, designing and coloring printed jacquard fabric collections, continues to inform her innate sense of color, texture and composition. Kristin's painterly fully developed style is well-regarded in the fine art galleries that represent her work.
