Well known for her colorful and lively graphic works, Barbara's most recent paintings are made using elements from the landscape. 'My paintings represent a conversation with the land and were made using materials collected from visited locations or while out walking . Rocks, bricks and tile fragments have been ground to make paint. Ash and soot are also used. Inspired by ancient rock art I have tried to imagine a visual language which allows the land itself to speak.'
