“I do not have any deep or intense philosophy about my work but I love the act of painting – of picking up paint and putting it onto a canvas – it’s a one-off mark every time – and therefore exciting and without guarantee!
I live in a wonderful environment – a both geographically and spiritually rich place. I respond to a range of subjects for painting in terms of colour and texture. For the most part I use acrylic paint for its immediacy and quick-drying properties that suit my style of painting.
Libby adopts a varied approach to her painting, which is predominantly in acrylic. Some of her work is quite abstract whilst other is more figurative. One of the distinguishing features of all her work is a vibrant use of colour. Much of her recent work reflects her interest in the local landscape, the Lake District and surrounding areas.
