Libby Schoettle on Phoebe


Phoebe is a complex character created by collage artist Libby Schoettle. She is up to something new everyday – you can follow PhoebeNewYork on Instagram and Tumblr. We asked the artist to reveal a bit more about the meaning behind the collage ‘I hate this’.

Artist Libby Schoettle says, “Phoebe rarely shows her full face. This collage is titled, ‘I hate this’ because she is very insecure about how her face looks and can’t wait to get back behind the curtain. At the same time, her egotistical side is loving and craving the attention from the audience.”

Can you relate?
