most importantly, ourselves.

What collectors are saying...
“I love Barbara's work because it comes from
a place of deep experience . . . the work is inspirational, grounding,
and has a complexity which makes it never boring hanging on the wall,
even years later. I find it evocative and healing.”
— Rita Stucky, Psychologist
