An artist all her life, Barbara now works from home in Gloucestershire and works mainly in oils, painting landscapes, beachscapes, seascapes and townscapes in an impressionistic / semi-abstract style.
She has a particular love of painting coastal and beach scenes since spending many family holidays in Cornwall when her children were young. The unique and intense light filtered through the fine Cornish sea mist can make the landscapes and beaches seem almost luminous and she finds this transient and ever-changing spectacle a great source of creative energy.
People often feature in her paintings, giving a sense of scale or movement.
Barbara has exhibited widely, her work is held in private collections both in the UK and abroad.
