Libby VanderPloeg lives and makes work from her studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She grew up in Michigan on the edge of the Great Lakes dunes, and has lived in Chicago, New York, and Stockholm. A mix of beauty and humor, Libby’s work comes out of her deep affinity for storytelling, music, letterforms, printed ephemera, and nature. Her illustrations often fold in conversational scribblings of her musings, thoughts and observations drawn from quiet strolls around the neighborhood and conversations at the coffee shop. She rarely meets a situation she would not like to draw.
