I used to say ... "I get to do what people do once they retire but I've since revised that to ... I'm so fortunate to have the ability to love what I do, day-in and day-out”
~ Tresa Gibson
Recognized for her unique impressionist style that balance colour and depth, Tresa’s work has been described as a simultaneous sense of order and chaos. She has been a thriving self-taught artist for 14 years specializing in oil on canvas.
Born on the west coast in Victoria, Tresa moved around at a young age, to Britain and then to Calgary which she calls home. She runs a successful fast-paced studio in Calgary and her art can be found in collections throughout the world. Walk into her studio on any given day and there will be paint flying, music playing and an abundance of laughter!
Tresa is best explained as a fiery ball of energy & enthusiasm who throws herself with abandon into every facet of her life. Her art is an expression of her personal beliefs of optimism and spirituality. It illustrates the moments of enlightenment and positivity that we all seek.
Her deepest source of inspiration is the laughter and enthusiasm she pulls from others with her unique fervent positivity. With this goal in mind, she is highly dedicated to giving to her community by participating in many fundraising efforts yearly. Her connection to others, in all occupations, fuel her excitement to express herself on canvas.
