Barbara is a plein air and studio painter, working primarily in oils. She is also a Teaching Artist at Art Works Now in Hyattsville, a School Docent at National Gallery of Art, and an art therapist.
When painting plein air Barbara finds inspiration mainly from local landscapes and the French countryside. In the studio she works on subjects such as chefs, cafés, and patisseries. She has exhibited at local venues such as Politics and Prose, Gallery B in Bethesda, Brookside Gardens, and the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation Fellowship Hall Gallery.
