Do not fear the empty spaces, they are spaces where we can design something beautiful. Do not fear unfilled spaces, time or future… it is the canvas where we can design goodness.
A moment of stolen reflection during last summer’s trip to France. The French value beauty in everything they do and build; it is an integral part of their culture and history, which makes visiting the country a dream and such an inspiration for an artist. I love the preserved old world architecture, the attention to detail and artistry everywhere I looked. Where are your favorite spots to travel to for inspiration?

When I got this studio, it was white rough walls, exposed beams and was quite literally a blank canvas…anything has within it the choice for renewal, and can be made new and beautiful! Art is an outer song of the inner mind…an artist turns their mind inside out when making each piece. What do you want to make beautiful in your life today? Every corner, when tended with attention, can be transformed, in our spaces as well as in our lives.

When I think of my sister, I think of someone inspiring and fearless, with the courage to make her dreams real. I also think of growing up together and being each other’s company and playmate, partnering in creating fantastic worlds out of our imagination, playing for hours in the backyard under the trees, and growing up together. We are similar and different in many ways, and that makes our bond so special. Love you Lauren Fair and I’m so glad we just happened to be in the same family! A few snaps from the trip to France earlier this month, which was a dream. And PS–Check out her photography here–she’s amazing!
“Chanel Modes,” oil on linen, 16″ x 20″, by Jessica Libor 2018. Coco Chanel began her fashion career as a hat maker, obtaining her milliner’s license in 1910 and setting up her shop at 21 Rue Cambon, Paris. The name of her shop was “Chanel Modes.” Her career and legacy as a fashion luminary that changed the world grew from there! Email email@example.com if interested in this piece.
This 5″ x 7″ oil on panel study was made in preparation for a larger painting with the same subject matter. Did you know that Coco Chanel was a milliner (hat maker) before she began making dresses? She had her own shop, called “Chanel Modes.”
Message if interested in this piece! Done while studying at the Grand Central Atelier.
Sometimes, it is good to step back and look at the big picture of your life…the things you are working towards and why, the dynamics of your life, and re-define what is important to you. I can so easily go on autopilot, doing the same things I’ve always done because I’ve always done them, and they are habits… it is good to take a step back and look outside yourself. Take a higher view and think about what matters to you. Sketching on the high cliffs of Etretat in France overlooking the world. Photography by Lauren Fair, dress by Bhldn. Where do you go to think things over?
What we focus on is what we see. “Mermaid’s Lair,” oil on panel, painted today watching the sky reflected in the waves and the surf against the rocks. Can’t you just imagine a mermaid on these shores? Oil on panel, 8″ x 8″, by Jessica Libor. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for purchase inquiries.
If all the world’s a stage, who do you play today? In this outfit I felt transported to the 1940s, playing the part of a femme fatale in a mysterious plot. The best fashion transports and transforms the wearer into a different state of mind. Delighted to collaborate with Top Vintage Boutique on this project with photographs by Jake Foden at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
