ABOUT DEBBIE 

Debbie Gibbs has painted and done mixed media work in acrylic for many years. As of July, 2019, she began devoting much more time to her work, having retired from over 40 years in education.  Debbie's abstract paintings take on a variety of styles. She uses an emergent approach, discovering the painting as she goes. 

 

 

Recently Debbie has been exploring the use of paper with acrylics in a mosaic-like style inspired by her love of Gaudi and Fuster's mosaics. This style is more deliberate and controlled and yet, in the spirit of Gaudi and Fuster, the acrylic and paper mosaics have a way of evolving as well in an organic fashion. The paintings themselves suggest the titles when the work is complete.
