Born and raised in the upper Midwest, Barbara began her artistic career at the age of five. Her work has been on exhibit internationally, and purchased by collectors, corporations and public institutions.
Painting is a means to offer a part of myself and evoke emotion in others. My painting is not a wall decoration, but a recollection or concept of an experience.
Whether it is discovering a “new” technique or incorporating aspects from many methods, the result is always a discovery. This discovery is often evidenced by viewing the painting from three vantage points – what you see from afar, near and close suggest different compositions and/or emotions.
The mystery of life and all its forms intrigues me. Being appreciative of life and the surrounding environs, hopefully I evoke peace and wonder with my work.
Barbara is the only person in the State of Nevada who has earned signature membership in the American Watercolor Society.
