A lifelong interest in art has combined with Libby's love of rural life in the Texas Hill Country. She is a popular and effective instructor and teaches workshops across the country and in her studio on a 30-acre farm in Dripping Springs, just west of Austin, Texas. In addition to painting, you may find Libby shearing one of her Angora goats, spinning fiber on her spinning wheel or weaving on a loom made by her grandfather. Resident flocks of ducks, turkeys, chickens and bee hives produce down for pillows, fresh eggs and honey and pockets of herbs in the limestone rocks are used for cooking and dying yarn.
