LIBBY | antique textile collection
Libby is witty and warm, and a bit impatient. She knew since she was a child that she would be an artist, and began her career painting commissioned portraits. However, Libby loathed working with human subjects because she found people exhaustingly vain and unrealistic, so she turned her focus to tiles. She sources locally made ceramic tiles in her beloved city of Faro, and hand paints each one - always with a lollipop in her mouth. At the end of each day she wanders to her sister’s bar on the water where she drinks Sangria, drawing much of her inspiration from the seaside and the bar’s endless stream of characters.
