Barbara is a graduate of the College of Marketing and Design, specialising in graphic design. From there traveled to London where she worked for ten years in Graphic and Book Design, while also completing further studies in these areas.
After her return to Dublin, completing a course in interior design, and building her family home, she moved towards creating her art as a business rather than pure pleasure. Her interests in design, art and interiors all come together in her work.
Although Barbara exhibits locally at craft fairs, most of her work is sold through word of mouth, and hangs in private collections in Dublin, the UK , Luxembourg, and the USA.
