Barbara Appleyard  

A self-taught artist in the true Folk tradition, Barbara painted what she knew and loved best: country scenes with children and animals frolicking, people working their farms surrounded by stone walls, barns, covered bridges, hills and ponds, coastal harbors. Paying meticulous attention to line, form, detail and color, her paintings exude a sense of joy and represent cherished memories of her life growing up in the country. Barbara has won awards and shown her work in many galleries.
