Gladys Gibbons studied design (which included linocutting as an exercise in simplification) at Julian Ashton's Sydney Art School under Thea Proctor, who became a lifelong friend. Gibbons exhibited her linocuts throughout the 1920s and 30s, later pursuing a career as an art teacher at secondary schools in Sydney and Melbourne.
