I met Barbara at the Bead Society of Orange County a couple of years ago. She’s so talented! Her paintings, assemblages and collaged art journals reflect her love of cowgirls, the old west and travel, among other things. I keep nagging her to send some things in to Somerset Studios because I’m sure they’d publish whatever she sent them. Here’s a perfect example.

She’s such a fun person, her enthusiasm is contagious. Spend any time at all with Barbara and you know you’ll be laughing the whole time.
And here’s where you can see more of her work. Soon she’ll also be merchandising her cool jewelry, as well. http://barbarabastrupfineart.com/
