Former teacher and interior designer, Barbara derives most of her influence from nature and science. The Great Barrier Reef with all its wondrous shapes and vibrant colours has been a huge source of inspiration since she moved to Queensland. She visits the reef regularly and enjoys snorkelling off Heron and Lady Elliot Islands. Other inspirations have come from microscopy of organisms, plant life and indigenous art. Her work is vibrant and exudes light and colour.
"I wanted to create a contemporary style of my own that is Australian in character that takes the observer to a new level of colour and contrast".
If you like any of the SOLD paintings, a similar work may be commissioned from the artist in a size to suit you.
