Reaching through the veil of what we call reality, are those artists who are bridges between the worlds of Spirit and Matter. Bringing through visions of stunning beauty, compelling harmony and peace, these beings seek to reconcile these Worlds for all humanity. Barbara Berry is one such artist. Each work encompasses a unique view of the subject, whether a close- up of a Nature subject, an image of man's relationship to Spirit, or a painting of Light & Shadow. Each image seeks to capture the subject's essence and recapture and communicate the emotions of the artist.
Barbara developed an interest in art at a very early age. Before she could even write she was drawing realistically. Spending much of her time drawing, she continued developing her talent throughout high school with the addition of private lessons and summer classes at the American Academy of Art, Chicago. Attending Northern Illinois University, Metropolitan State College, Denver, and the University of Northern Colorado, she was introduced to many diverse styles. This diversity can be seen in her painting.
For the last 20 years Barbara has painted full time and shared her knowledge through workshops and classes. She is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and has been included in many juried national exhibitions.In 2004 she will be included in Who's Who in Executives and Professionals. Her work is in collections throughout the U.S., Europe,and Australia. Barbara is currently represented by several galleries in the Western U.S.
