Exploring the Creative Decisions Behind Animals with Attitude
Barbara is a native of Boulder with a varied fiber art background. She had an early interest in art, learned to crochet, quilt, embroider, and love animals from her mother. As her interests expanded to knitting, spinning, and needlepoint she was encouraged to join the Handweaver’s Guild of Boulder by Sue Henrikson. Barbara is now a full time working artist combining quilting and her connection to animals into a distinctive style of animal portraiture.
