Sybil Gibson was a talented self-taught artist from Dora, Alabama. At the age of 50 and with no previous training nor interest in art, Sybil Gibson was seized..."suddenly and completely" by an urge to paint. At hand were sixteen grocery bags and powdered tempera with which he experimented. These materials remained her medium through 35 years of compulsive painting that obliterated her former life. Sybil Gibson's ethereal paintings of people and flowers place her work as one of Alabama's cherished self-taught artists.
