Originally from the Wellington region, Barbara has lived in Muriwai for the past 26 years. She worked as a Landscape Designer for 10 years where all her plans were hand drawn and rendered. 15 years later she returned to drawing as a past time activity finding the process to be therapeutic and meditative. Her interest in human behaviour and the love of art and animals brought about the natural progression of incorporating colour with the use of acrylic paints.
Mainly self-taught Barbara enjoys creating paintings that are whimsical and quirky, evoking the imagination of the viewer.
“I love the process of painting, allowing images to emerge and an open-ended story to unfold as I work on each piece.”
