Biography

As an artist I explore the splendour and natural beauty of the environment through drawing and painting across various mediums, including graphite pencil, pen and ink, coloured ink, coloured pencils, pastel and watercolour. I extend this exploration into the artistic expression of embroidery, working across the techniques of crewel, blackwork, canvaswork and stumpwork.

My artwork and embroidery pieces are now available as art prints and other products on my Society6 store here: https://society6.com/margueritegibsonart
