Effie Gibson is a ceramic artist working in stoneware. She completed her BA (hons) in Fine Art at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle specialising in Painting. She then went on to study painting at the Royal College of Art for her MA. Leaving in 2000.
She combined a painting and teaching career until she moved to East Sussex where she started evening classes in ceramics in 2007. Since then her practise is predominantly ceramics based, although the motifs and methods predominant in her ceramics remain consistent with the themes she explored in her paintings.
