Barbara Harman


I work in series over a number of years, focusing my work on a single theme, explored through the natural environment of a specific place. The art I create during that time establishes a bridge between an actual place and events in my life and in the world. A series encompasses writing, site notes and sketches, photographs, prints, paintings on paper and fabric, embroidery, and artist books. Current paintings, prints and poetry in the Fairy Tale Series marry the archetypal stories of childhood with personal history.
