Self taught Topiary Artist Mike Gibby-Siz Gibson from Youngstown, OH creates imaginative whimsical sculptures out of ordinary bushes that help beautify any space. Always having a passion for art, his innovative approach to topiary has helped him become one of the most sought after topiary artist in the country. He can be seen creating sculptures on HGTV's reality TV show Clipped.
Most recently he completed a residency at the famed Pearl Fryer Topiary Garden in SC, where he and his family now reside. His thought provoking work has been seen across the country, including a recent collaborative exhibition in Times Square, NYC. He is currently working with the University of South Carolina, and the soon to open Ernest A. Finney Jr. Cultural Arts Center teaching the benefits of topiary to the surrounding communities. Gibson's philosophy is that the more topiary in any given space, the more peaceful it can become.
