Singer, songwriter, artist, Jill Gibson is mostly known for her collaboration with Jan & Dean and for having briefly been a member of the Mamas and the Papas. She is also known for her photographs of the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival.
Gibson studied art at the Art Student's League in New York City with classical artist Frank Mason. After two years there, and a short stint in New Mexico, she left for Florence, Italy, in 1970. For the next five and a half years Gibson painted while living in the Tuscan hills, studying briefly at The Simi Studio in Florence. Gibson's style is influenced by her interest in Renaissance art, nature, and the feminine. She divides her time between her homes in Oakland, Los Angeles, and San Mateo Rio Hondo, Oaxaca, Mexico.
