This biography from the Archives of AskART:
She began sketching when she was three years old and there has never been any question in her mind as to what her career would be.  Her first major influence was her mother, who worked in the commercial art field and who encouraged her from the beginning.  In Junior High School, she was blessed to have a teacher with a doctorate degree in art.  He taught her the basics, which would prove to be a great strength in years to follow.  In High School, Walter Garver, a working artist, furthered her education including commercial art instruction.  At Kent State, she majored in Commercial Art for a time and then switched to the Fine Arts so she could take a wider range of courses.  Sculpture, Ceramics, and Anatomy were part of the curriculum as well as painting and drawing classes.  She graduated from Kent with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.
In 1968, Barbara moved to Salmon, Idaho, and made her home in the mountains where a variety of wildlife and scenic beauty surround her and her family.  She has five children, several which have artistic talent and are building on their artistic heritage.  She and her son, Morgan often go into the wilderness to photograph, study and paint.  She considers the time spent in the field as being just as important as knowing the basics of technique and color.

Barbara feels that the West is her home although her interests are not limited to this area alone. She has traveled throughout Europe, Canada and the States and likes to bring diversity to her work.  Her enjoyment of wildlife is evident, she has an endless capacity for natures’ many beautiful and magnificent treasures.

She has won several prestigious awards, including:
National Western Art Show -Best of Show in Oil, Judges Award for Best Auction Piece and
Peoples’ Choice for Best Auction Piece; Oregon Trail National show - Best Oil; Northwest Territorial Art Show - Artists Choice; Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation - Artist of the Quarter; Spokane Western Art Show - Best of Show.

Her work is featured on book covers, as well as in magazines and on magazine covers.

She is mentioned in Who’s Who of American Women and other Who's Who editions.
