Artist Biographical Statement

A painter for many years, Barbara has always been captivated by the beauty of the land and our place in it. From this inspiration, she has incorporated natural objects into her work using a variety of media and techniques, from pastels, acrylics, oils, lithography, and mono-prints to collages of natural objects. She has begun an exciting new series of mixed media work, “The Gaia Series.” Gaia is one of many names given to the earth mother in numerous cultures. Gaia is our mother from whom all life flows. The question is, what is our connection to the fate of Gaia today?
