About Ginny Gibson

Ginny Gibson grew up in a small town in the Mojave Desert of Southern, California. She achieved a master’s in Early Childhood Special Education and taught in southern California for 33 years, at the same time exploring art and psychology through workshops and practice. Retiring in 2007, Ginny moved to Oregon and devoted her energy, through clay, to expressing the sense of play, and a sympathy for the human condition.  From tiny shoe models to complex scenarios in sculpture, Ginny finds ways to touch the hearts of many.
