Bibby works on canvas and wood panel to create rich texture in her mixed media art. She begins layering papers intermixed with found objects, marks with paint and then uses an orbital sander and other scraping tools to excavate and reveal the layers beneath. She uses bold colors, text, found billboard scraps to make her mixed media work come alive.
Bibby’s mixed media works on paper is layered with paint, paper and marks. She often creates her own mixed media collage materials and incorporates them into her work adding dimension. Collage scraps she finds on urban streets and ephemera she collects at flea markets are woven into her mixed media work bringing forward a vibrant joy.
