Barbra has a strong affinity with nature particularly movement in birds and other winged creatures. She sketches and studies trees in the natural environment surrounding her Cumbria Studio and flowers in exotic gardens. Travel has influenced her work, the African Wildlife particularly appears in some pieces.
The etching process is my main medium; also I work in monoprint and woodcut often combining processes using collage for colour and texture. I do not seek to create a likeness but rather to achieve a magical moment or thought process which could be an abstract concept.
