An artist and crafter from early childhood, love of design has been a theme throughout Libby’s life. Studying art and botany in college, then a career in Graphic Design and Marketing, she always had craft projects on the side. Intrigued by samples of needle felting in 2012, she has been making small sculptures since, inspired by nature, color, and the beauty of natural fibers. All use natural wool, some with wire armatures, beeswax, and horsehair whiskers, with made or found accessories to add a touch of whimsy to the otherwise realistic figures. After a move to New Hampshire in 2018, Libby decided to reconnect full time with her inner maker, delving into the crafts she has always enjoyed.
