"My most recent paintings combine my formal training in portraiture with the documentary nature of journaling, capturing a moment of life and distilling it into a work of fine art." Libby's work has been exhibited in galleries in Norwich England, Gandia Spain, McAllen Texas and most recently in both Sedona and Phoenix Arizona. Fascinated by the idea of using the arts as a vehicle for teaching and learning Libby created an arts immersion program for the public schools allowing students to experience and explore another time and place as part of the humanities curriculum. The program was funded by state, city and foundation grants, and ran for 14 years in the Sedona Oak Creek School District. The idea of immersion and engaging all the senses through the arts evolved into a journaling workshop where students of all ages learn to record the moments of daily life. Libby has since evolved different versions of therapeutic/artistic journaling that she teaches to groups and individuals.

Early one morning a little girl was sitting at a glass table with her bowl of cereal and a very imaginative daydream. The two yellow birds above her are whispering so as not to interrupt, and the doorway at the top is where she came from on her way to the breakfast table – now it appears to be almost floating away and the glass table has transformed into part of her imaginary world where the stars are still in the sky, the sun is rising, and she has all the time in the world.
