Lou Gibbs completed a degree in Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon School of Art in 1989. Here, she studied under Bernard Cohen, Michael Porter and Prunella Clough. Since then, she has continued to paint full time and is currently listed with East West Gallery. Over the last ten years she has developed a technique of applying shellac and oil onto gesso that realises seldom achieved potential in the pigment. Working with this newly developed medium, she plays a scale with our perceptions evoking a real sense of a landscape that is, in fact, only dreamed.
