ARTIST BIO

Born in 1939, Barbara has enjoyed a long and successful career pursuing her first love - painting.

\r\n

Although guided and influenced by several well-known Australian Artists, she is basically self taught. Her expertise has developed over four decades, and although retired from teaching these days, she was an established and well-respected teacher in both oils and pastels for many years.

\r\n

 To Barbara painting is a passion, and sharing her gift is important to her. She demonstrates her techniques at Art Societies and Rotary Art shows throughoutVictoria, and over the years has judged many of these events. As well, she has won many awards that have gained her much recognition throughout her career.

\r\n

 Barbara paints mainly in pastels and oils these days, but she is also noted for her work in gouache and sometimes watercolour. Through these media, she has captured with true colour and clarity of vision, and her love of the Australian countryside. Her dynamic yet restful paintings are full of freshness, energy and movement, inviting all to share her enthusiasm and insights into the nature of things. Barbara has travelled extensively, exploring her inner vision and re-defining anew her spiritual relationship with the Australian environment, and more recently, the British, European,New Zealandand more recently theUSA.

\r\n

 Barbara has drawn much inspiration from the magnificent environment ofMansfieldand theDelatiteValley, having lived in this area, from 1989-2001. This is still reflected in the wondrous moods and colours of her latest paintings.

\r\n

Over the years Barbara has held regular solo exhibitions, and in 1998 & 2000) held two very successful solo exhibitions in England UK.
