Elizabeth (Libby) Parsons
Born in Québec, Libby came from an artistic family and was inspired by many famous Québec artists. Although studying art in school, her life took a different path as her family moved to India where she studied nursing. She finished her degree at Queens University and then married a military officer. Their years together included two children and involved travelling the globe and living in Europe, the Mediterranean and across Canada. Libby maintained an interest in art and studied wherever she could in spite of frequent moves - first year Fine Arts at the University of Alberta, watercolour and acrylic courses, etching, pen and ink, life drawing and history of art. She painted and sold her art on these travels and her paintings can be found in private collections around the world including that of the Belgian Royal Family. It has been Libby’s dream to devote herself to painting in retirement. Libby and her husband chose the beautiful Okanagan to retire to and Libby is living her dream! Libby is a Juried Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the Naramata Arts Studio and the Penticton Arts Council.
