Hello and Welcome to my Art World

If this is your first time visiting, you're in for an inspiring, colourful and joyful experience. If you're visiting again, you will see new colourful and joyful, original works inspired by experiences in my life and people who continue to fill my life with joy. Since 1998 I have been painting, exclusively, one-of-a-kind artworks, (mostly) in the acrylic medium. You will not find any prints in my work; completely original. My work is about colour and the relationship among colours. My work appears unrepresentative, even random, at times, but a balanced composition clearly planned, for any subject I paint. I have had numerous exhibitions and featured in several publications and I continue to evolve my art practice. I am grateful for my following and active loyal art collectors in my Art World.

My work fluctuates between impressionism and abstract, each challenging and rewarding in its own way. I love the historical painting techniques from great painting masters like Georgia O'Keeffe, Emily Carr, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh, to name a few and at times desire the kind of focus it brings me. In contrast, my abstract work allows me to be flexible and express myself to work more spontaneously with vibrant and evocative imagination, which I also need at times.

My online portfolio includes original fine art for your home and office, and that fine one-of-a-kind gift you are looking for any special occasion. Choose from picturesque Canadian, American and Mexican water/landscapes, amorous flowers, spirited abstracts and other themes that grab my zest for life. Each painting I consider a masterpiece and each in its own right; a variety of subjects and in a variety of  sizes and on different surfaces. I have a connection to many styles and techniques while being my authentic self. My work is solely "an expression of my being and art 'through my eyes'." And, all commission work is considered and completed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Peruse my website at your leisure and enjoy my Art World!

Always with inspiration and creatively yours,
- Barbara Simpson

 My Mom and Dad taught me when I was a young child, 'Where this is a will, there is a way.' And how true that is! This could be for anything and includes helping others and not only during seasonal occasions. Anytime is a great time to help others.  Read some of the wonderful experiences I have had the pleasure of helping others by means through my art here. Enjoy! Barbara Simpson


I absolutely love summer. How about you? The warm to hot temperatures, gardening, flowers galore (like these lovely Lilies!!) connecting with nature and butterflies fluttering about. Energizing Tiger Lilies and strong greenery dancing in the breeze together with my love for butterflies, floral life itself, and inspired by photos given to me from my Dad, my newest masterpiece came to life and with a story of its own. Available for collection.

Dec 2019: "The Best of Summer", 30x40, acrylic/gloss varnish on gallery-wrapped canvas, unframed.
