Barbara Syburg has a long standing heart-to-heart chat going on with Mother Nature. Within the conversation Barbara finds inspiration that has powered 40 years of creative reflections about the earth and its creatures. She has made a habit of changing up the mediums she records her impressions with and exhibits watercolor paintings, art quilts and carved & painted gourds. Barbara’s intricate imagery, no matter the surface, begins as a drawing, develops with rich applications of color, and is finished with finely executed details and touches of smile inducing whimsy. The end result is artwork on paper, gourds and cloth that echo the endless colors and patterns of the earth, and carry the sense of timeless connection Mother Nature offers us all.
