After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009, Walker, now a highly accomplished illustrator, embarked on a successful career in the field. With a remarkable portfolio of clients including esteemed brands like Jo Malone, Estee Lauder, Ibis Styles, The Hilton, RSPB, and Chivas Brothers, Libby has made a name for herself in the industry.
However, Libby's creative pursuits didn't stop there. Alongside her commercial illustration work, she developed her own brand, focusing on illustrations that celebrate local communities. Her artwork beautifully captures the essence of these places, highlighting the shops, cafes, pubs, and architectural gems that define them.
In 2018, Libby took a significant step in their artistic journey by opening a shop in the heart of Glasgow's Southside. The shop became a true homage to Scotland, with a special emphasis on Glasgow, attracting visitors from near and far. It quickly became a beloved destination, offering a curated selection of artworks, homeware, and stationary featuring Libby’s distinctive designs.
Today, Libby's artistic vision remains firmly rooted in the vibrant tapestry of Scotland, drawing inspiration from Glasgow, its people, and the strong sense of community that binds them together. Her ongoing dedication to creating artworks that embody the spirit of Scotland ensures that their unique perspective continues to captivate art enthusiasts far and wide.
As Libby's journey unfolds, her art continues to serve as a testament to the beauty of Scotland, paying homage to its rich heritage, local gems, and the unique sense of belonging that resonates throughout the communities they depict.
