I’m Carol Gibbs, a professional portrait and landscape artist. I teach, undertake commissions and sell my own work at Strawberry Fields Art Studio, Viables Craft Centre, Basingstoke, Hampshire. I work with a range of media including watercolour, oil, acrylic, pastel and pencil.

Adult  Art Classes & Workshops

I’ve been teaching for more than ten years and my classes are very relaxed and sociable, with a mix of abilities from complete beginners to more accomplished artists.  So if you’ve always wanted to learn how to draw and paint, or perhaps improve your skills, then I’ve lots of classes and workshops to choose from.

Portrait and Landscape Commissions

I take commissions in a variety of different subjects, with pets and family portraits from photographs being particularly popular and enjoyable. I can create abstract pieces and landscapes to suit a particular colour scheme and space.

If you are considering commissioning a piece then please take a look at the gallery to appreciate my style and contact me to discuss your requirements and budget.

Art for Sale

Many of my own works are for sale including many wild animal portraits.

I’m a member of the Marwell International Wildlife Art Society, and spend several weeks of the year working on my entries for the annual MIWAS exhibition. As a cat lover these are very often the big cats like Tiger and Snow Leopard.  Take a look at my gallery and contact me if you are interested in knowing the price of any pieces.
