An award-winning artist, Libby’s practice focuses on contemporary landscape painting. Four generations of watercolour painting inform her work and she is passionate at pushing boundaries in the medium. Her loose, luscious washes capture expressive and rich encounters with the landscape when she paints ‘plein air’. She seeks to capture the sensory experience of place and uses line to represent bird song and their visual movements. Libby won the Annie Tan Memorial Watercolour Award (Queensland Regional Art Awards) and has been finalist in multiple local and national awards. 

Libby’s long experience in arts education has provided a solid foundation to support students of all ages and abilities, she teaches workshops and classes at her studio in Coolum along with facilitating workshops in partnerships with organisations such as Flying Arts.
