Barbara Green:Artist

Morcombelake, Dorset

Barbara received formal art training while at Trent Park Teacher Training College, where she specialized in Art. During her busy life as a teacher and mother of four, she continued to paint and sketch. Since retiring from teaching and moving to Dorset, she has been able to develop her art.

A versatile artist, Barbara works in a variety of media – oil, watercolour, collagraph, etching, monoprinting and collage. Her choice of subject matter is inspired by her immediate home environment, the Dorset landscape and travels abroad. She particularly admires the work of the Fauves and the Scottish colourists.

Barbara exhibits in local galleries and has exhibited in London Exhibitions such as The Affordable Art Show and Art Works on Paper. Her work is in private collections around the world and for the past twenty years Barbara has exhibited in Dorset Art Weeks and has welcomed many visitors to her studio in Morcombelake.
