After concluding a lengthy corporate career Barbara decided to pursue her passion for art. She is inspired by a deep desire to communicate on a spiritual and emotional level and feels compelled to find ways to share that feeling in clay and on canvas, creating visual stories through movement and color.
Barbara’s work is primarily abstract sculpture and painting. She revels in dramatic gestures, bright palettes and rich textures. Her figurative works are frequently elongated, faceless, fantastical beings and are often described as moving or emotional. Barbara works very quickly relying on the medium as an active participant in determining the direction of her art. While she sometimes plans, her most successful sculptures and paintings are of organic origins.
