Artist Statement

I am Libby Clarke, a cultural producer and educator based in Maplewood, New Jersey. 

I have dedicated my professional and personal practice to social justice, graphic design, and declarative printmaking in order to leave this world better than I found it. I see that people need facilitation to find what they need–I make my work, both artistically and professionally, to provide any help I can.

Artist Bio

Libby runs Go High Signs, a project born out of her need to fight for restorative justice in fractious times. She has produced conceptual products under the name Monstress Productions since 1996. In 2000, she won a project grant from the NEA to produce the first major showcase of these, the Monstress Activities Box . She has exhibited and sold her work internationally. Libby has taught the making of protest posters, leading workshops at places such as Pyramid Atlantic and California State University at Northridge. She focuses on printmaking as a form of democratizing art and art making. She has given lectures on her work at the Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center, California State University, the Southern Graphics Council International Conference, Zeebelt Theatre (in the Hague) and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
