Barbara grew up on Absecon Island, off the coast of South Jersey, USA, along the inland waterway from Maine to Florida. She traveled and studied through her twenties and lived in Chicago, Philadelphia and New York City. Her family moved to Rutland, Vermont about the time gambling came into Atlantic City; from then on, she has considered Vermont her home.
Until lately, painting had been her medium of choice. Once a portrait artist on the Atlantic City boardwalk, she studied portrait painting with Everett Raymond Kinstler at the Art Students League in NYC. She holds a master’s degree from Castleton University in Curriculum and Instruction and has taught Art History, Crafts, Painting, Sculpture and Digital Arts.
Today she works in the digital medium, often enhancing her images with colored pencils and chalk. Barbara learned her technical skills while teaching Multimedia and Design at GMTCC in Hyde Park. Her love of technology and digital art in its many forms. . . including type, motion, interactivity and graphics, propel her to create.
Barbara sells her work framed and unframed at the Artist In Residence Gallery and approves of using tacks to hang her posters. They are color keyed and can add balancing color to any room.
Her enhanced digital art can be printed on a variety of paper types and endless sizes, a small image can become a room size wall covering. She welcomes custom orders. Exploring image size / location relationship is one of her visual pursuits. Please contact the artist for additional information.
