I love of being alone in the woods or at the shore. That feeling of nature “bathing” is what I try to bring into my art making. I am inspired by the things I learn about nature and energy thru my practice of Tai Chi & Qi Gong, which are ancient Chinese forms of moving meditation and internal martial art. They teach me how to connect to nature and feel the world instead of just looking at the surface of things. Yin and yang, being and nonbeing, stillness and movement, light and dark, sea and sky, surface and depth, sight and sound, artist and viewer, self and nature - I am interested in exploring how one can see beyond polarities to sense the invisible and mysterious unity underlying them. I try to share the sense of presence, deep quiet, and dynamic stillness that I find in meditation through my artwork.

I grew up in Connecticut and have extensive experience creating and exhibiting work, including solo shows and projects in Hartford, New Haven, Newport, and Boston. She has work in several corporate and private collections, including the permanent collection of The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan and several related hospitals in New York and New Jersey. Awards received include an Artist Fellowship from the Connecticut Office of the Arts, an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Greater Hartford Arts Council, a Creation of New Work Initiative Grant from the Edward C. and Ann T. Roberts Foundation, and an Artist Resource Trust Fellowship from the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. She holds a degree in Fibers from Syracuse University’s College of Visual & Performing Arts and attended Cranbrook Academy of Arts.

Barbara lives in Bolton, CT and maintains a studio in the Arbor Arts Center in Hartford.
