Hello and Welcome to my Art World!
My name is Barbara Simpson and I am a Canadian Artist painting 'originals-only' (no prints) since 1998 in the acrylic medium. 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 several exhibitions, and continue to evolve my art practice. I am grateful for my following and active loyal art collectors, in North America and Europe - Thank you to all!!
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.
What will you find in my art portfolio? Lovely picturesque Canadian, American and Mexican water/landscapes, along with amorous flowers, spirited abstracts, and other themes that grab my zest for life. Each I consider a masterpiece, each in its own right. I am open to a multitude of subject matter and have a connection to many styles and techniques, still, while being my authentic self. There's much art to see for I am always painting and my story to read. - it's been an exciting couple of decades, to date! Enjoy my Art World!
Always with inspiration and creatively yours,
- Barbara Simpson .
