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 lightâ€”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. Theyâ€™re fun, bright and abstract and are just about a polar opposite to my watercolors.
I was born and raised in Seattle. I studied fine art at Colorado State University and received my BFA in metalsmithing there in 1977. A cramped apartment and a stint on the polishing bench at a jewelry manufacturer changed my mind about working in metal, so since the early 90's I have worked two dimensionally, drawing and painting. I also went to nursing school along the way and worked as an RN in oncology and hospice for 27 years until my retirement in 2017.
I am greatly looking forward to this next chapter and am eager to see where the art takes me.
