Libby is often found in the landscapes wild places with her rucksack of art kit sketching, painting and photographing the conditions and taking written notes of the wind direction, her route and the surrounding environment. This is how her paintings begin, out on location sketching and painting directly from the scene before returning to her studio to complete the final pieces. She finds that this makes for works that are spontaneous, full of energy, movement and light. As she seeks to convey the symbiotic relationship between the elements of weather, land and the interplay of the hidden the revealed scene.

This is to conveys her sense of journeying through the landscape and her feeling of being part of the scene. She finds that this enables her to expresses her intuitive response to the energy and enfolding drama of the landscape, capturing a feeling of light, movement and wildness. In her work, she seeks to evoke a glimpse, a moment in time and the sense of mood of the land and place.
