Barbara is an international artist who lived most of her life in a small village near the Rhine Valley in Germany. Her deep desire to create art began at a young age. Barbara’s parents encouraged her passion for art through private art lessons and visits to Europe’s museums to view the collections of masterpieces. She was educated in foreign languages and had a successful career as a foreign language correspondent. Ultimately, Barbara’s love for creating art became so strong she closed the door on her career and opened a new door to the world of art. She transitioned to a successful full time career in art and has never regretted her decision.
