BIO Niomi D. Gibson is an all-around artist who explores her creativity in painting, sculpting, photography, poetry, jewelry, hat making, and homemade cosmetics. Though her roots are Jamaican, Niomi was born in South Florida in June of 1981. Niomi has never received any formal training for her artwork yet has been a creative soul since childhood. As a child her mother took her to arts & craft stores as if they were toy stores. Niomi started painting as a child and put down her brush to live out the trials of everyday life.
It wasn’t until Niomi suffered great tragedy that she picked up her brush again. Her artwork has served as an outlet for the depressive states she often experiences. With Niomi’s gift of art and her background in the psychological field she intends on sharing this expression as therapy for others who suffer from mental anxiety as well.
Niomi isn’t bound to one style or media, though oil is her favorite because of the smooth blending. She enjoys using different mediums to create an original collection of images and color. She enjoys painting images of the people she meets in her mind and giving her pieces texture because, to her, texture is life.
Statement "Up and Away is a dream I had. In the dream I found a never ending stairwell that, as I ascended I found an inner peace and drive that motivated me to climb higher."
