About Barbara Pease

Simply said, I paint because I have to. It makes me whole. The times in my life when I have let that side of me go, I have gone a little crazy. Art is my sanity and my refuge. In my watercolors I am very interested in light - how it shines through and reflects off of objects and people, and how that light captures time. I use photo references because I study that precision of light and shadow in a particular moment.

For the past few years I have been painting on silk. I am seduced by the vibrancy of the colors and how they play on the sheen of the fabric. For paintings, this is slow and very process filled work, so I have only a few detailed pieces in that medium. But I also have been painting scarves. They're fun, bright and abstract and are just about a polar opposite to my watercolors.
