Mediums: Watercolor, Painting, Mixed Media/Collage, Acrylic
Barbara?s water media and collage paintings are abstracted images
and ideas taken from her life experiences with people and places.
Having lived in Hawaii and Florida, tropical flora, landscapes and
light inspire her simplified shapes, collaged texture and fresh
color. In addition, the large, single figures that Barbara paints
reflect her love for human gesture and unique dress.
For Barbara, art is a life long passion. It includes an Art
History degree from the University of Michigan, visits to art
museums in the United States and in Europe, and active
participation in several art groups and workshops. Barbara has
exhibited her work throughout Michigan for the past two decades.
She is proud to have her work represented in private homes as well
as in permanent collections of the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery,
Dearborn, Michigan and Jackson Community College, Jackson,
