Katie Libby was a little girl growing up in South Carolina. With a household of artists, she was given the exposure to a creative world of imagination and color. Fast forward to the college days, she went on to receive a BA in Studio Art and a BA in Art and Architectural History from College of Charleston. She still lives and works in Charleston and is a resident artist at Redux Contemporary Art Center.
The subjects of her paintings tend to reside within the everyday—specifically in the landscapes around us or the faces of people we may not notice very often. She makes an effort to capture someone’s facial expression or a specific landscape in real-time. Keeping the colors alive, she often uses a non-finito technique while trying to view each piece as a continuing rhythm of work.
