Cassie Gibson

I am a process-oriented artist. I enjoy the movement of dye on fabric, the buildup of layers of design and ideas, the act of painting. Working in my studio encourages meditative feelings of energy, freedom, and clarity. I am inspired by nature, people, color, pattern, music, and ideas. My most recent pieces deal with peace and the need for us all to work together to preserve our world.


I work primarily on silk or silk rayon velvet for my scarves. I paint with French silk dyes and Gutta resist or I use Procion MX dyes. I also use discharge chemicals to remove color and devore chemicals to etch out mixed blend fabrics. I embellish my pieces with hand and machine quilting, beading, piecing, and photo transfer.


I live amidst fruit trees, blackberries, wisteria, and lilacs in Ukiah. I have lived in the area since the ’70s and was previously a preschool teacher and a part-time instructor at Mendocino Community College in Early Childhood Education. I have taken a variety of art classes as well as workshops in silk painting, botanical printing, and surface design techniques on fabric.

I consider myself to primarily be a silk painter with an interest in quilting and machine and hand embroidery although I enjoy variety and will frequently use different mediums.


I am a founding member of the Corner Gallery-a co-op with a non-profit component. My work can be seen on that website and in the following books: Inland Artists of Mendocino County, The Surface Designers Handbook On a Wandering Wind. I have previously been in two SAQA regional traveling shows-Strata and Art Quilts.


In the past 10 years, my work has also been shown on consignment at the Upstairs Gallery in Healdsburg, ACCI in Berkeley, Northcoast Artists in Fort Bragg, The Grace Hudson Museum, and the Willits Center for the Arts.
