Welcome to GIBBIN HOUSE!

When I first started this blog about the misadventures of a nascent author, I had only a small novel under my belt, titled Gibbin House. The building that bears the name is a fictitious postwar era safe-house, as many might have existed, and the London home of my motley crew of exiles. I could not anticipate then the degree to which I would join its ranks of writers and artists, but since publishing my book in 2011, I have had the greatest privilege of opening my own art gallery and of exploring my love of the written word through visual poetry and paper sculptures. Yet much like the girl who first started blogging two years ago, I suspect I don't know what I'm doing half the time. As such, Gibbin House remains a refuge for ramblings...and on occasion a haven for little triumphs.

Little Triumphs: Bronze Winner of Art Ascent Magazine's 'Emergence' Art Contest!

I'm so excited to be able to add another 'Little Triumph' to the list, as Art Ascent Magazine just announced that I am the Bronze Winner of their July issue's 'Emergence' art contest!!!

The magazine chose the top 20 artists from among a host of international applicants earlier this May, and will feature the three placing winners in July's print as well as digital online issue, with article and photo spread.  I've been lucky to get a preview of the article and I must say it is a wonderful appraisal of my art's thematic direction and aesthetic aims.  To see more, visit the website and sign up for the magazine's newsletter.

Also, if you're inspired to support my work, sign up for the 'Gibbin House' giveaway at Closed The Cover!  The book review website is conducting the contest, and will award three lucky winners autographed copies of my book!
