Libby VanderPloeg is a Midwest-based artist, illustrator, and designer. She grew up in Michigan on the edge of the Great Lakes dunes in a small town called Grand Haven and has since lived in Grand Rapids, Chicago, New York, and Stockholm. Her mixed-media paintings, animations, and digital illustrations drift between art, pop, and meme culture, exploring her relationship to feminism, activism, aesthetic ideals, and daydreamy pursuits of happiness. When she’s not drawing, you might fun her running, cycling, or on a quest for buttery pastry. Libby’s artwork has been published in The New York Times, Washington Post, The New Yorker, Time Out, Food 52, Ann Taylor LOFT, and TED Talks among many, many others. Her work is very relevant, often reflecting on social movements impacting women such as the #MeToo movement and the Womxn’s March.
