Artist Spotlight

Trident is excited to display the work of Becky Kisabeth Gibbs.


Becky Kisabeth Gibbs’ art explores a continuum; from realism to nonrepresentational abstraction. Referencing nature, fractal patterns, biomorphic shapes and light, she paints subjects basic to our world – water, trees, sky – as well as creating inventive abstract realms from her mind’s eye.

Becky works in a variety of media – oil paints, watercolors, and mixed media, including India ink, powdered pigments and numerous drawing materials. Her current body of work on exhibit at Galatea Fine Art in Boston includes oil paintings of both the ocean and the sky. Using nature as a vehicle for emotive conditions, she continues her tradition of the translation of human experience into the natural states that are parallel to it. Boston area solo exhibits include 2012, 2014 and 2016 at Galatea Fine Art, and 2015 at Concord Art. She has also participated in many group exhibits and juried shows. Her work can be found in public and private collections including Boston Children’s Hospital and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.

Becky received her BFA from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio, with a concentration in Graphic Design. Over the course of her career she has worked as an illustrator, silkscreen artist, graphic designer, corporate designer and art director. When her focus returned to fine art, she furthered her studies at the DeCordova Museum School, Lincoln, MA. She works in her studio on Fountain Street in Framingham, MA. Born in Sandusky, OH, she currently resides near Boston.
