"The romance of travel and my passion for painting are the driving forces for me to create. My hope is that my paintings allow you to step into a magical place giving you peace and tranquility."
Recognized as a naturally gifted artist, Barbara expresses her impressionistic view of the world with striking colors and emotive settings. Her paintings range from captured moments of innocent children exploring new wonders to tranquil landscapes of the Old and New World.
Barbara travels extensively in Europe, the Americas and Caribbean observing the locals, their lives, traditions and families, developing scenes for her paintings. To date, she has copyrighted over 3,000 unique photographs of the Old and New World. Using these photos, Barbara captures the emotion, movement and depth of her paintings through skillful use of shadowing, contrasting light and dark colors, and texturing the layers of oils used on her canvases. She uniquely crafts the colors of each individual canvas by planning and laying down each predominant canvas color one layer at a time. Each painting is an original and is sequencially numbered on the back. This number refers to the order in which each painting was started. This procedure enhances the value to collectors of her works.
An accomplished and sought after impressionist artist, Barbara's paintings are on display in both public and private collections throughout the Americas. When not traveling for her art, she resides in Vero Beach, Florida with her husband and two German Shorthaired Pointers.
