Libby Scott lives and works from her home studio in Perthshire, where she is surrounded by wide vistas, deep open skies and panoramic views. She weather watches every morning by walking through the land accompanied by her border collie, observing, feeling the wind direction, noticing the changes of the season and maintaining her daily practice of elemental connection.
After a working for her family’s Dundee based textile business Libby initially studied Textile Design at Dundee College of Further Education. In 2001, she then graduated with Bachelor of Design with Honours, specialising in Ceramics, from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee.
Since her studies she has had a diverse career including working within a busy Accident and Emergency department and latterly, for a number years, as an off-road driving instructor in various locations within the UK and Europe. For a few years she lived in Germany and has travelled extensively within Poland, Norway and Spain.
She is now a dedicated full-time artist, painting and drawing having regularly exhibited throughout Scotland in a number of group and solo shows, as well as being represented by various galleries. Her work is often selected for open exhibitions, such as The Meffan Institute, The Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art and Moray Art Centre.
