Hi! I'm Laura Hallenbrook Gibson and i'm an artist from the  San Francisco / Bay Area in California. I combine my love of photography and painting to create colorful abstract images.  I start with a close-up look at patterns, colors and textures found in our material world. In my latest series I am working with ink on tile, i'm fascinated by it’s ephemeral quality changing moment to moment. It is full of possibilities. There’s a luminous, saturated, playful quality that I capture close up. My intention is that these images remind us that there is a world to beyond we see on the surface.
