Artwork Archive's online service is a must for the serious artist who wants to manage their business with the same flair they bring to their art. Artwork Archive also provides a great management tool for art collectors. The feature list for both keeps growing and the service is a fraction of the price of similar online tools. I can not recommend it highly enough.

Georgia GibbsTaking cues from the natural world, I create work that's familiar to both the eye and the heart. These visual notes, rich with texture, trigger a memory fluttering at the edges and just out of reach.

Working primarily in oils and mixed media, I incorporate cold wax as a medium in my paint. I enjoy the tactile quality it lends the finished work. Depending on the way it's applied or handled in the final stages it can resemble polished stone, earth or crumbling artifacts. I usually work in multiple layers and may completely erase what was laid down before by newly introduced marks. I use pallet knives, putty knives, and brushes to lay down and scrape away surface information.

In 2018 I was recognized by the Town of Fairfax and appointed as Artist in Residence, a Collaborative position awarded to 3 artists for 3-year terms. This position provides us an exciting opportunity to both promote and demonstrate the value of the arts in our community.

place that said "you're home now": San Francisco. Everywhere in Spain I took a breath.

inspiration found: The ocean and coastal hills. Wild gardens. Music. The written word.
