A New Yorker at heart, but now residing in a pretty suburb of Philadelphia, Barbara studied Communication Design & Illustration at Syracuse University and a few years later received her MFA from the University of the Arts in Book Arts + Printmaking. Through a commingling of both analog & digital methods, she love to combine textures, colors, shapes and whimsical abstract forms in a modern, sophisticated way. She is inspired by walking around in cities, small & abstract details found in nature, and Scandinavian design. Barb typically spends her days drawing, designing, making monoprints, scanning and being a mom who takes out excessive amounts of children’s books from the library - only a few of which are actually for her two small-ish children.
Barbara has recently licensed products with her artwork on home decor, wall art, stationery, and, she is currently working on illustrating a series of childrens books.
