"Art takes me to a fanciful, fabulous place surrounded by beautiful color and dramatic feeling. My creations are an expression of what I sense in the world around me. I strive to convey my feelings through the use of many layers of color, texture and movement. My hope is that you will be inspired and energized by what you see...that you will feel a connection that evokes good feelings and creates a special memory. I long for my art to take you, as it does me, to a fanciful fabulous place".
Barbara retired from commercial banking in 2005 and began studying art. She paints in the genre referred to as “emotional abstraction” primarily using acrylics. Barbara is noted for rich layers of color and texture. Her work seamlessly melds geometric elements with vibrancy, spontaneity, and organic form.
Barbara and her family live in Houston, TX and have a vacation home in Santa Fe, NM. Much of Barbara’s inspiration comes from nature, particularly the rich colors and awe-inspiring land-forms found in Santa Fe.
