Artist Biographical Statement
All things concerned with water is the subject of Barbara’s current series of work created in soft pastels and mixed media. Changing seasons along the Kansas River where she lives, water patterns, rushing streams, lochs (lakes), and tide pools are the intriguing subject matter she is exploring. Her distinctive double collages combine various media, including pastels, acrylics, and oils with found objects such as wood, stones, bones and shells. Sets of note cards with reproductions of her pastels will be available to purchase too.
Barbara is an award-winning artist who has been making art all her life. A graduate of KU, she teaches drawing and pastel classes in her studio and also teaches for the KU Osher Institute. A 25-minute country drive from Lawrence will take you to her home and studio atop a bluff overlooking the Kaw to enjoy fantastic art, great conversation and refreshments.
