About Barb


Doing mostly commissioned portraits and landscapes, Barb has been a professional artist and teacher in Iowa since 1968. Oil, pencil, pastels, acrylics, and watercolors are all used as she realistically and expressionistically gives life to your ideas and requests. She teaches classes weekly in her own studio and in workshops around the USA.

A portrait created by Barb of your family, yourself, or a loved one created from a studio seating or a photo will instantly become a family treasure. Each portrait commission will be exclusively tailored to meet your specific needs. If an oil on canvas portrait seems too extravagant, then consider one of Barb’s sensitive and intricate pencil or charcoal drawings. A custom piece of art is one of the most special gifts you can give yourself or someone else. Let Barb create a lasting memory of your children, love one, pet, or place you love to visit.
