About Barbara – Classic

With a degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Art from Rutgers University, my heart has always belonged to both nature and creative expression.  Early in my career, I moved on from the Forest and Park Services to art administration and education, all along still indulging my creative vein through ceramics and jewelry-making. After returning from a six-week sojourn to Japan in 2010 with over 3500 photos, I decided to pursue photography and digital art as a primary medium of expression.

I realise it may be a pain to you to spend ten or fifteen minutes with each plugin to test whether a plugin is suitable, particularly when the many premium WordPress products come with a 30 day money back guarantee. However, it is better to spend some time testing a plugin beforehand than struggling with it afterwards and requesting a refund.



Now, as I hike, ski, paddle and peddle through nature’s landscapes, what my camera sees and what I experience are often different.  I seek to reconcile that difference through digital editing. An instructor of Photoshop at Sierra College, the Placer School for Adults, and the new Connected Communities Academy in located in the Green Screen Institute in Nevada City, I have over 20 years of working with the program both professionally and for personal work. With a passion for organic textures and forms that borders on obsession, I am grateful that the computer allows me to use nature’s textures as my palette.
