Ibby Allan grew up on her family’s farm and cattle operation where she developed an early curiosity of the natural wonders around her. Largely self taught, she has been drawing and doodling as long as she can remember filling sketch pads with color and energetic ideas. As a youngster, she participated in 4-H where her artistic endeavors developed, and earned her honors at county and state fairs. While living in Denver, Colorado for an extended period of time she studied art through independent workshops and with various instructors at the Denver Art Students League.
From the Artist:
My artwork aims to capture moments in time in rural America. I find inspiration for my creations in everyday adventures, of farming and ranching, the Western lifestyle and the outdoors. I push the use of color and values to reflect emotion and energy. Creating continues to be a journey of grit and grace, learning and discovery.
