Libby Kyer is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and an instructor at the Denver Botanic Gardens' certificate program in botanical art and illustration. As a professed control freak, she finds the demands of this art form satisfy her love of science and intricate detail. She believes humans are hard-wired to make order out of chaos. Finding the order in nature helps us to understand life in all its aspects. Libby works in colored pencil, graphite, carbon, water media, ink, and computer. Her award-winning works have been included in national and international juried exhibits and are in public, corporate, and private collections including the permanent collection of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation in the U.S., as well as in national and international publications. With co-author Cora Marcus, Libby created “Today’s Botanical Artists” (Schiffer Publishing), a compendium of the works of 65 contemporary North American botanical artists.
