Nothing completes a space like original artwork. Barbara would love to work with you to create custom art just for your home or interior design project.
Often Barbara has clients who tell her which pieces of her works they like (and why), and they share with her exactly what they would like her to change to make it their own special piece.
The process is very case-to-case basis and Barbara ALWAYS makes it work no matter how hard it is to decide what you may or may not want.

Why is a commissioned work more expensive than other work of the artist?
Working on commission — creating a specific work of art that someone asks the artist to make — is completely different from working for yourself where the artist makes whatever they want to make without any input or influence from others. Making a work of art for yourself is solo act; producing a work of art on commission for someone else is a relationship — a partnership between the artist and that person. Never confuse the two. This is much more stressfull for most artists and it often takes more hours to make the art and to discuss what is expected to create the right painting for you the client. This is what makes a commission such a special one of a kind piece of art.
Would you like to try and paint (never painted before) or you need some more confidence in your painting, Barbara teaches private, semi-private and small group classes in her art studio. Barbara's classes include information and lots of hands on exercises in painting with acrylics, colour, composition and texture.
