Barbara says she is “a boots on the ground - head in the clouds” oil painter. Her work
begins outdoors with a process of collecting nature’s colors and spending time looking
into a subject until she feels a heart connection. Then she translates it into paint.
Sometimes a scene calls for an impressionistic offering and sometimes the studies go
back to her studio and explode into abstraction. “It’s really all about love. If I can paint
with the love I feel for nature, it just might continue the journey to a viewer. That for me
is a successful painting.”
Her art life has evolved from illustration, pottery, watercolor and now to her favorite
medium of oil. She lives and paints in Santa Fe.
