Expressions of lightheartedness could best describe my art.  It’s whimsical, ‘fun’ art.  Some day I hope to paint like the Masters but in the meantime, I try to capture emotions with my style.  Whether painting a young girl’s radiant smile, a carefree beach walker, or a competitive tennis player, I hope that through paint and color, that expression will be conveyed to my viewer.

Barbara has lived in and visited many countries.  She pursued a degree in Nutrition which led to positions in the US and overseas in Morocco, Italy, the former USSR and India.  Wherever she lived she painted.  When she and her husband retired to Sarasota, Florida in 1997, it was the perfect opportunity to fulfill her life-long interest in art.  She began working with Pen Woman Leona Sherwood and it was Leona who encouraged her to exhibit her work.    Click on any thumbnail below to view larger image.


In 2006, Barbara received the FSA Art Scholarship Award which enabled her to concentrate on figure and portrait painting.  She’s studied with local artists Bill Jerdon, Bill Buchman, Ron Sanders, Karen Hitt, Peter Brown, Daniel Petrov and Robert Liberace from VA.  Her work has received awards and has been on exhibit throughout the U.S. and Italy.  She is proud to have many commissioned works of art.  She particularly enjoys large paintings on commissions. 


Her favorite subjects are people and she incorporates her many interests into her paintings.  Her work can be found at the Longboat Key Town Hall rotational exhibit, the Sales Gallery at the Venice Art Center and her studio.
