Barbra Edwards currently works in the Gulf Islands, BC. She studied photographic arts at Dawson College in Montreal, followed by design and still photography at Ryerson University in Toronto. Intensive studies with Harold Klunder and Peter Kolisnyk followed, along with selected workshops in the U.S. and Canada.
The natural environment has long been a source of inspiration, with the plant and animal world having a major influence on her paintings. Recently her work has evolved to include more of her loose gestural marks integrated with forms that intertwine with a rhythmic layering of feeling. Hers is tender yet sensuous story telling, with brushstrokes that share with the viewer how the painting was made.
