About Barbara


I am primarily a painter in oils but I also enjoy printmaking and sculpting.
I came to painting late and bring a lifetime of clutter and culture, both Western and Eastern, as well as other knowledge and experience to my work.
I love painting. Sometimes I am driven to paint by current events but most of my work is based on myth, history and legend. Just as stories are retold so are some subjects and ideas repainted.

I use themes that have been treated by many other artists, writers and musicians over the years. For example, Adam and Eve, the Madonna and Child, Greek myths and ‘Fairy Stories’ amongst others..
I believe that painting is an intellectual process as well as a craft.

I hope that you will look at my work and that you will be able to connect ,and enjoy  through my paintings, with a part of my inner world.
