Drawing is about hope

Working across mediums, Bonnie Gibbons’s playful work reflects her ongoing explorations of surface, pattern and light. Originally trained as a knitwear designer, texture and layers are integral to her handwriting.

From a van shaped studio, Bonnie Gibbons enjoys the process of observing and absorbing her surroundings; looking at things from the floor, and then straight up into the sky, the ground leading into a great expanse of nothing. For Bonnie, art is about hope and chaos - often optimistic, sometimes uneasy.  Plants are as pleased for the rain as they are for the sun, and a storm is beautiful because within grey skies there are hidden reds, yellows, blues.

Bonnie Gibbons has exhibited art in London, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wales. As a designer, she has created textiles and surfaces that have been sold in the US & Europe, and been exhibited at international trade shows such as Premiere Vision & Pitti Immagine Filati.

*A note on education

I was very lucky to go to a state school that prioritised its art department, and then to get a further education that allowed me to meet inspiring designers, teachers, craftspeople & artists. This is not the only route. Art is for everyone, regardless of education, background or anything else.

If you have a desire to make art, you are an artist.

Arts Emergency advocate for young people's access to arts and humanities. You can read more, donate or mentor here
