Barbara has been painting for thirty years, going back and forth between watercolor and oil and most recently collage. She has taken workshops from numerous artists in watercolor, oils, pastels, collage, and mixed-media. Recently after taking several workshops with Pat Lambrecht-Hould, she has been fascinated with the collage media which incorporates gold leafing. She especially loves painting children and still lifes with crystal.
In Prescott, Arizona Barbara was co-owner of Mountain High Five Art Gallery for 3 years. She currently is living in Laguna Hills, California and exhibits each summer at the Laguna Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach, California.
Her work has been selected into the Arizona Aqueous Juried Show in Tubac. And one of her paintings was selected for the poster at the Laguna Art-A-Fair Festival, where she has exhibited since 1991 and has served on their board of directors.
