Kay Gibson

My work is primarily about the ecology of Western Australia with a special interest in its birdlife. Drawing, painting and printmaking are my main media although recently I have enjoyed making sculptures from clay and paper mache.

I also teach printmaking, drawing and sculpture at the Margaret River TAFE. I serve on the Foyer Gallery Team at Arts Margaret River, fostering emerging artists and I am also on the board of Arts Margaret River and a member of the Arts Advisory Committee for the Augusta Margaret River Shire Council.

I have been a participating artist in the MRROS event since its inception in 2014 and the benefits to both my arts practice and the region have been considerable.

Although I have been represented by commercial galleries the opportunity to meet and speak directly to visitors about my work over the 16 day event is a unique and invaluable experience.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts, (Visual Arts), from Edith Cowan University in 2002 and in 2005 added Honours in Visual Arts to my qualifications. Since then, I have been represented regularly in group exhibitions and competitions. At the South Western Times Survey 2009 my work was acquired by the City of Bunbury Art collection. In 2010 I received 2nd prize in the painting category of the Waterhouse Natural History Prize held at the South Australian Museum. I am also a past winner of the Shire of Busselton Signature Southwest art competition. In 2011 I was commissioned to do an etched zinc mural for the Augusta Margaret River Shire Administration and Civic Centre. Churchlands Senior High School invited me to be their guest artist in 2016 and 2017. My work is represented by The Studio Gallery Yallingup www.thestudiogallery.com.au
