Paintings in private collections in France, Germany, UK and USA.Comments:"...Barbara’s paintings (are) captivating and uplifting. They draw one into an unknown dimension, as if one passes through a magic screen into an enchanted world of shifting light, colour and energy. The range and varied intensity of the colours, the sense of lightness and the open-ended nature of the whole work have instant appeal and fascination and speak a universal language."
(Denise Outen, UK)

magnifique! L'émotion poétique, la douceur et la tendresse colorée..."
("...it's magnificent, absolutely
