Libby is an Australian artist and fiction writer living in Orange, NSW.

She is originally from Maitland (near Newcastle).

Various country, coastal and city locations, nature, the four seasons

and her own life experiences have inspired Libby's artworks.

Some of her favourite places often feature as

backdrop locations in her stories.

After raising a family, writing fiction and visual art

became Libby's chosen creative pursuits.

In 2007 she completed a Certificate IV in Fine Arts and participated in

several group exhibitions. Libby also held a solo exhibition

in 2008 called The Empty Nest, reflecting on her own experiences

as a mother with an empty nest.

The compulsion to write has been strong

and Libby finds the process rewarding and meditative.

She has written several fictional novels.

One of these novels, The Jasper Plate, has been

self-published and is available for purchase

in paperback & hardback form and also as an ebook.

Libby's hope: 

...that others will enjoy her stories and visual art

as much as she has enjoyed creating them...
