Award winning artist, Liberty Proffit Day grew up on her family's ranch in Western Wyoming.  One of five girls, with one brother, she grew up learning the skills necessary to work on the ranch with her family that would inspire her future as she built an inseparable relationship with the land, the animals and the culture of western life.
     Liberty attended the University of Wyoming for three and a half years and graduated from Brigham Young University
  with a degree in Visual Arts.  She married her sweetheart, David Day and began her family while continuing her career as an artist.
     Among her achievements, Day was awarded “Best of the Wild Horse Award” at the juried “Wild Horse and Western Art Show” in Rock Springs, WY.  Day was also asked to speak and paint an original work for the Stewards of the Range Annual Conference in Reno, NV.  Liberty was one of two artists honored at Shadow Mountain Gallery's Women of the West Art Show in Jackson Hole, WY.  Day's artwork has been featured in publications like Cowboy Magazine, Range Magazine, The Record Stockman, The Wyoming Livestock Roundup, and The Cornerstone.
