This is a message for all Followers & Friends of Rachel Gibson and in the dark woods.

I am Steve Gibson, Rachel’s husband, and with the deepest regret I must inform you all that Rachel died suddenly, of heart failure on 24th April. I cannot describe my distress and sense of loss.

I am aware that you admire her work and, if you knew her, also loved and admired her intelligence and wonderful personality.

You can email me at:

Thank you.

  1. Hello Steve

    I didn’t know Rachel beyond the fact I liked watching new work appear here, and she was taking part in an open ‘Puppet Challenge’ exhibition at my own website. I’d been wondering about contacting her as the deadline drew near. I am saddened to read this news. It must be a terrible time for you and her friends and family, and I send my deepest sympathies.

    My very best

  2. Dear Steve,
    I am so sorry for your loss and I am very saddened to hear of Rachel’s sudden death.

    I am also sorry to have only just got around to looking at this post.

    Rachel always left likes and lovely comments and encouraging remarks on my blog. I shall miss hearing what new paper cuts she has been getting up to and seeing her lovely work.

    It is very sad that I shall now never have a chance to meet her in person, I had hoped we would bump into each other at some point seeing as we had similar interests.

    I don’t know what your spiritual beliefs are but God bless you and her and all her family and friends.
