Inspiration & Process

"My Estuary" A1 Alcohol Ink on yupo paper

About Me

My Background

image40

My name is Libby Dyer and I am a self taught Intuitive Abstract Artist. I reside on the beautiful Gold Coast surrounded by breathtaking beaches to the east and picturesque mountains to the west. 

After many years of concentrating on motherhood and career a series of life experiences and traumas lead me back to my love of art. 

I have very fond memories of studying art through school and dabbled in many classes over the years. I often think of my teenage years going to the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane with my grandmother. Times treasured and always looked back on with happiness and excitement. 

Two years ago with support and encouragement of my loving husband I started experimenting and creating again. I overloaded myself in art classes and endless YouTube videos experimenting and trying to connect with MY style and freedom of expression. This is where I found the very addictive medium of alcohol inks. 

My Medium

The spontaneity and unpredictability of alcohol ink and how it forms and separates into different cells, is what exhilarates me as well as hoping to tame my sense of wanting to organise and control. This  medium instills in me a true passion and complete acceptance of oneself. It transports me to a world of vibrancy, fun and exploration. Deep down I believe we all have creative expression. This is my passion, my release and myself raw. I  create on either canvas or yupo paper of varying sizes. I at times mix it up and add other mediums of acrylic paint, spray paint, pens and other inks. These are my humble beginnings as an emerging artist. I hope you enjoy. 

My Inspiration

My art hopes to embrace a very positive, energetic and fluid art making process. I view my work as intuitive which resonates in me and my audience a very emotional and physical expression of my feelings and surroundings.  I am inspired by the sounds of nature, the ever changing and majestic views of oceans, landscapes and skies and my evolving connections with them. I am inspired by life, past experiences, what's to come and my loving and supportive friends and family.
