Libby Hague is an artist who grew up in a family of artists and scientists although they never realized it. Instead, they called it "trying out something new", "just puttering around" and "going down to the basement". She was lucky enough to  be gratified by the process early on and selfish enough to do it all the time. 


Libby Hague  is a visual artist who works primarily in print installation and lives in Toronto, Ontario. She studied fine art at Concordia  ( then SGWU) and has participated in various print residencies and exchanges including in the past three years residencies in  both Scotland and in Ireland, Xylography - Stylistic Matrix, Galati Visual Art Museum, Romania, the International Paper Art Exhibition and Symposium, Chung Shan National Gallery, Taiwan, My one and only life so far,  as part of "Miner for a heart", curated by Loop member, Yael Brotman for Impact 7, Melbourne, Australia (the last work also opened in NY and  Austin, Texas in the IPCNY's autumn exhibition), the 6th Novosibirsk International Biennial of Contemporary Graphic Art, Siberia and L’Arte E Il Torchio International Biennial, at the The Civic Art Museum, Cremona, Italy .
