Of course you know her…PhoebeNewYork

Libby Schoettle was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. She currently lives and works in New York City, where her artwork takes the form of original collages, photographs, drawings, and street art, as well as a small run of limited edition prints (and custom prints that are available upon request).

Libby’s art centers on the character “PhoebeNewYork.” PhoebeNewYork is the artist’s alter ego, and reflects Libby’s own emotions and perceptions.

PhoebeNewYorkPhoebe first came to life in collages created with found objects including vintage clothes, book covers and photos, line drawings and photographs. Her Instagram followers seek out Phoebe for her dark and funny explorations into love and relationships, as seen here.

More recently, Phoebe has ventured onto the streets. There, she changes dynamic cityscapes in intriguing and ephemeral ways…offering a message of understanding to passersby who might at that moment feel lonely, dejected, isolated or even hopeful about the possibility of love and acceptance. Phoebe-on-the-street is fresh and feminine and aims to evoke emotion and forge connections among people, including the artist herself. See some of Libby’s street art here.

Together, Libby and Phoebe are the subjects of a modern-style docuseries that will provide a one-of-a-kind perspective on the quintessential artist’s experience. The docuseries is being produced by Canobie Films and is scheduled for release in winter, 2017.

Libby is also an aspiring author; she’s currently writing her first memoir-based novel depicting her life as an artist.
