Barbara H. Hart
Barbara grew up in the Island Nation of New Zealand, amidst Alps, Lakes and surrounded by oceans. Art was her passion growing up, with many drawings and paintings kept within various sketch books. It has remained a major part of her life throughout careers as a Graphic Artist & Illustrator, Architectural & Interior Designer, and for the last ten years as Art Teacher as well. She currently teaches in the Sarasota & Bradenton areas, and is active with several local Artist Groups.
Over several decades she has accomplished many varied commissions for private and commercial installations, from large realistic and contemporary murals 40ft. wide, domes 20ft across and even smaller paintings. Her work is well dispersed across the nation as well as internationally, and her art has been represented in Galleries in various States. She has lived in 8 different States and several countries, and now makes Florida her home.
Barbara is proficient in Acrylics, Oils, Watercolours and Ceramics, and enjoys creating representational art to abstract genres, from landscapes to figurative.
“Motivation to become an artist, is knowledge that I can create whatever I truly believe. I am diverse in learning and experiences, inspired by the Great Masters and contemporaries alike. Painting is meditative in nature, and brings peace to my soul. Art is Freedom to create images and objects from visualisation or reality, with no stringent boundaries.” - Barbara H. Hart
