Custom Artwork

Creating a piece of artwork that has personal meaning to you or to your family would be a pleasure! I completed dozens of custom works ranging from portraits to landscapes to abstracts, specially crafted to enhance a particular space and become a beautiful part of my patron’s daily lives. My approach to capture spirit of my subjects makes a piece of art that will be constant topic of conversation and admiration for years to come.


If you would like to commission an artwork , please contact me through my email to set up an appointment and discuss your ideas. You can bring your own photographs if you will order a portrait or I may take my own reference photographs for the painting. Composition, materials, style, price and other details of the commission will be discussed. A non- refundable 50% of the final price of ordered piece -deposit -is due at the time of order. The balance of the price is paid once the commissioned piece is fully finished. The price is adjusted accordingly up to the cost of material, size and work involved.


Public commissions are also welcome.

Liba's Customers Say:

Liba is a poet who uses both paint and prose to express what she sees and feels about the human creature.She shows us the seemingly invisible aspects of being human. Invisible because we’ve stopped looking.Through her words and her paintbrush we are reminded of what we truly are. Liba reminds us that we are energy and matter, ebb and flow, and she does this with amazing grace and beauty.Her work is gentle and relaxing and it refreshes the soul. To gaze upon her paintings returns us to the meaning of life, relaxes us for a spell before we go back to the myriad of every day distractions. Her paintings say "Rest here a while”.


Niaomi J.Hamilton


Liba’s painting of our children has been a conversation piece in our home ever since it was hung on the wall. The first thing people ask when they walk into the house and see it is “Wow – that is amazing” ... we know we will treasure it for our lifetime.


Brent & Anita Livingstone


We first saw Liba’s art at ACAD and couldn’t walk away from the beautiful landscape piece she created. We bought it and it has graced our home for the last 10 years. The mountains, skies, and foreground are so expertly and fluidly created. We returned to Liba a couple of years later with some pictures of our lakefront property, and requested that she paint a large scale piece using the pictures are references. What we have is an incredible 5 x 6 foot piece of art that encompasses our lake, the 200 year old Ponderosa Pine trees and more. It graces our living room and everyone who enters our home remarks on it. Liba is a talented artist whom we are lucky to have been able to meet and whose artwork gives us daily pleasure. If you are lucky enough to have a piece of her art in your home, well then you understand the beauty that is hard to describe.
