The art of Barbara Dickinson is born out of a deep love of the natural world. As a child raised camping, hiking and exploring the environment of N. California she began her love affair. Visually expressing that profound appreciation of nature followed. Her study of natural science, birds and plants along with photography, painting and drawing created a synergy which has been the heart of her work. She is inspired now by the plants, creatures and locales throughout N. Arizona and the Southwest.

Her paintings, which are acrylics on canvas, attempt to reflect as well as reinterpret the world around us. The purpose of her art is to focus the viewer on the incredible patterns, forms, and colors that surround us; hopefully to visually transport us so we can share in her experience of wonder and awe. Dickinson aims in her paintings to refresh and delight her viewers; bringing us joy as we travel through them.
