Barbara earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with concentration in Drawing and Painting from James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA. She taught high school art for many years until she realized she preferred to be working in her studio making her own work, which she now enjoys full time. She loves traveling, painting in Plein Air and from the photographs she takes along the way.
Her style is a colorful blend of contemporary Impressionism with a bit of Fauvism. Barbara chooses the scenes she paints by her emotional response she has with them and the way the light falls throughout, making the brightly lit colorful shapes she loves to paint.
