Barbara was born and raised in England. She is a silk painter and lino printmaker. Her move to Quadra in 1993 influenced her work and the west coast features largely in her paintings and prints.
"My love of silk painting began in 1988 when I took an art course alongside my degree in early childhood education. During the pandemic, I became interested in printmaking and delved into the world of linocut, sparking an exploration of the abstract and ink making."
