Barbara Simpson is a Canadian Visual Artist, working and living in St. Catharines. She is recognized for her “originals-only” (no prints), 23 years and counting. Primarily painting in the acrylic medium, she has also employed charcoal, pastels, oils, and other media into her work over the years. In addition, notable for her spirited use of joyful and romantic colour in her Impressionistic, Contemporary and Modern paintings, Barbara states she does not conform to orthodox ways of painting, rather breaking boundaries and moving outside of her comfort zone to test her zeal as an artist while remaining authentic in her work. And she says she cannot imagine another rewarding career, especially during these unparalleled times, as it has always been her aspiration to enrich and inspire peoples’ lives with her colour and joy.
Barbara participated in the Canadian Tulip Festival in 2009, 2018 and 2019, and more recently in 2021. And since 1998, she is a member of CARFAC – the national voice for Canadian professional artists. All her work is hand-signed and carefully packaged and shipped direct from the artist together with a Certificate of Authenticity. Private collections of Barbara Simpson’s work are largely found in Alberta, with Ontario at a close second, and other locations in Canada, USA, and overseas.
