Born 1957, Paul D. Gibson started his artistic vision under the guidance of his Mother, Gerda, an immigrant from Paraguay, South America, who was a cake maker specializing in wedding cakes, “her artistic purity lives inside of me.”

Paul was educated at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA, in Architecture, where at the age of 22 he was offered a partnership at Greg Wilhelm AIA Architectural Firm, however, he decided to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, receiving a BFA.

Paul moved to San Francisco in 1989, established a studio in the city and began teaching at the Academy of Art University, where he instructed students in the art of drawing for over 18 years.
