Biography

Libby VanderPloeg

Libby VanderPloeg is an illustrator and designer. She grew up in Michigan on the edge of the Great Lakes dunes in a little town called Grand Haven. Since then, she's lived in Grand Rapids, Chicago, New York and Stockholm. Her work comes out of her deep affinity for storytelling, music, letterforms, printed ephemera and wildlife. None of these works could have been made without the world's finest brioche and several good, strong cups of coffee.
