Using traditional intaglio printmaking, along with innovative techniques, Barbara shares her love for this life. Her artwork incubates in her sketchbook, her companion on long coastal walks and evenings by the fire, until she is ready to commit her composition to metal. Both natural and social themes balance the inner and outer worlds.
