I create and share beauty, whether it's a place in our minds, a memory from our past or an experience not yet realized.
I am a Storyteller
My abstract paintings are a dance of elements – a brush stroke here, a shape there, a line – a dot – a mix of colors.
In this collection, atmospheric spaces become increasingly bounded by spontaneously drawn shapes. A multitude of colors make up this wonderful inspiration.
The beginning of each painting is different. Sometimes I start with a small part of reality and I give it a magical tilt. Some I start with pure abstraction and they end abstract.
Barbara Gone Wild
Here I explore the interface between passion and the intellect, pulsing tissue and desiccated bone.
Living in the Moment
My thought is to make each day the best we can and live in the now. Looking and being thankful for what is around us is so important.
Restoration, Recycling and Remembering
I thought of the state of the world, the excess in which we live: old structures are abandoned or torn down; new ones are put up unnecessarily. What would happen if we could take the lumber, steel, metals, etc. and make beauty out of the old steel mills, out of the hurricane damaged structures and even out of the hidden places in our minds. Could we rearrange them?
My art is a representation of the unity of everything – how everything comes together, how it comes apart, and how it comes back together.

Take a peek at my garden
I am trying to make a place that is beautiful, to live “with” or “in.” While I am here on earth, I want to share some beauty that is “inside” me, with you.
