Barbara has been taking photographs in a professional way since the mid-nineties, working initially with slide film, dark room enlarging and chemical color processing techniques.
Her background in the natural sciences creates a focus not only for landscape photography in many different environments, but in close encounters with all kinds of life forms and ecological systems. Light, shadow, spaces and patterns attract her attention and come togwether in these unique images.
Barbara is known for her local images taken in Southern Oregon, especially Ashland and Lithia Park with its' ever-changing beauty. She enjoys traveling to areas throughout the state with her camera at the ready. She particularly likes the recent abstract "water paintings" that play with reflected fall colors on the water of the Rogue River.
