Hello and Welcome to my Art World!

My name is Barbara Simpson and I am a Canadian Artist. Since 1998, I have been painting, exclusively, one-of-a-kind artworks, (mostly) in the acrylic medium. There are no 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 continue to evolve my art practice. I am grateful for my following and active loyal art collectors.

My work fluctuates between impressionism and abstract, each one challenging and rewarding in its own way. I love the historical techniques of painting from great painting masters: Georgia O'Keeffe, Emily Carr, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh, 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 affordable quality original fine art for your home or office, for your environment, or that fine one-of-a-kind gift 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. I paint a variety of subjects, in a variety of sizes. I have a connection to many styles and techniques while being my authentic self. All commission work is considered and is completed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Peruse my website at your leisure and visit again for I am always painting with new work added to the Gallery selections above, along with testimonials and my story to read. It has been an exciting (almost) 22 years to date so far!  Any questions, please contact me. Enjoy my Art World!

Always with inspiration and creatively yours,
- Barbara Simpson
