     Born to a working class family in Brooklyn, New York, Roe LiBretto has been accompanied by the imagery of her allegorical works since childhood. Her artistic proclivity was intermittently encouraged by her family who thought it was a lovely hobby and hoped she would one day set it aside and get a real job. In an effort to satisfy both her inner drive and the expectations of her family, Roe studied at the Brooklyn Museum, the School of Visual Arts, and City College of New York. She thought that, perhaps, there was a middle ground upon which she could construct a sustainable creative life.

     Roe did indeed construct a sustainable creative life, with some lengthy gigs at major publishing companies, and a few years customizing motorcycles on the then-not-so-hip lower east side of New York City. Beginning in 1974, she exhibited abstract drawings and sculptures in juried gallery shows in: New York City; Paris, France; Brooklyn, New York; and Pittsfield, Massachusetts. During that time she received commissions, from the New York City Cultural Council, and the Massachusetts State Council on the Arts, to create public kinetic installations. After an exhibit of her minimalist works in 1985, Roe became acutely aware that the path of minimalism led to nothingness, a state in conflict with the obligations of her reality. Thus enlightened, she took a hiatus from exhibiting and became intrigued by the concept of the Fool's Journey.

     In 1992, Roe migrated to New Mexico and co-founded an award winning publication design company which she sold after a mind altering car accident seven years later. Her journey continued with a series of jobs through which she acquired skills in patience, diplomacy, and project administration. Through it all, her allegorical companions haunted her. Encouraged by her son, queer fantasy writer/illustrator Ywain Penbrydd, Roe began translating her visions for public exhibition in 2015. 

     Roe LiBretto's work has been internationally exhibited in juried and open gallery exhibitions, and is held in private collections in the United States and Europe. She has received private and public commissions and, in 2018, was designated a Local Treasure by the Albuquerque Art Business Association. Her work can be seen in person at Ghostwolf Gallery in Old Town Albuquerque. To learn about Roe's inspiration and process, explore the JOURNAL pages of her website at www.roelibrettofineart.com.
