Biography:
 Born in Calgary, Alberta, Barb has enjoyed painting and drawing since childhood. She attended David Thompson University in Nelson,B.C. and University of Victoria in the Fine Arts Program. Barb spent many years in the Rocky Mountains and the Coast Mountains, working in the ski industry and for Parks Canada. Much of her inspiration comes from her experiences in these sublime places. Now living on central Vancouver Island, she paints in her Cedar-by-the-Sea studio. Comfortable working in acrylic, watercolour or oil, Barb conveys a personal uniqueness of vision.
Artist's Statement:
 Making art has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. When I was a child, I would admire Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" in the World Book Encyclopedia. The process of working with colour, line and form to create a pleasing design and composition can transport me to a state of bliss. I am attracted to colours and light effects that may be seen on a mountain face, or reflected in the wet sand by the ocean. I hope to share with you my encounters with the spirit of a place and the excitement of colours.
