    Gemmanick (born Gemma Annick Edmonde Harbulot on March 23, 1937 in Noumea) is a symbolist New Caledonian artist-painter of Irish origin. Her artist's name is a contraction of her two first names.
    The success of her 1969 exhibition earned her recognition in New Caledonian art circles and she was noticed by Seiji Tōgō, Member of the Tokyo Academy of Fine Arts, who offered her the opportunity to exhibit in 1971 at the Nichido Gallery, on the Ginza, in Tokyo.
    She also participated in the Nika Kai exhibition in Japan, where her painting Aquarescence won the grand prize in 1973.
    On the advice of Seiji Tōgō, Gemmanick moved to Paris in 1975.
    That same year, she was exhibited at Galerie Vendôme, 12 rue de la Paix where David de Rothschild acquired one of her works. It was also during this exhibition that her painting Carnival under the Sea was chosen to become an Aubusson tapestry.
    In 1977, with the fall of the loom of Carnival under the sea, Gemmanick, whom Armand Lanoux of the Goncourt Academy then baptized the Irishwoman of the Tropics, became the first overseas painter woven in Aubusson. Carnival under the sea is also the subject of the issuance of an overseas stamp in 1978.
