Gibbons was born in Oak Park, Illinois in 1944, and she was described as exhibiting “artistic talents at an early age. ” She gained a reputation in school as an artist, eventually creating her own small books that she personally described as “writing and drawing pictures of what I loved and where I wanted to be. ” She often visited the Chicago Art Institute nearby which likely fueled her passion for art. She studied graphic design at the University of Illinois. Gibbons herself quoted in the Something about the Author Autobiography Series, “I consider myself quite fortunate because I never had to debate with myself as to what I wanted to do with my life. The answer was always there. I wanted to be a writer and artist. ” Gibbons was inspired by one of her professors at the University of Illinois who was a professional children’s book illustrator.
