Audio version of biography
Connor Gibson (25, they/he) is a mixed media artist and youth worker who feels most connected when playing in the realms of textiles, writing and book arts. They currently live as a settler on Ohlone land and trace their personal lineage to the Germanic States and British Isles. They are currently asking how their art and work might serve as tools in movements for justice of all forms. They also enjoy exploring the ways that psychotherapy and the arts blend into one another. Connor has apprenticed with beings ranging from artist Anne Greenwood (Portland, OR) to the plant-artist known as stinging nettle (Kent, UK). Yesterday, they found out that the loquat tree in their neighbor’s yard might be a partner in making pink natural dyes.
