Colors and patterns spark my desire to create. Balance and play are key to my work, which I try to capture through colors that complement or contrast one another and through brush strokes and shapes. Rarely do I have a plan when I begin a painting, drawing, or collage. Rather, I follow my intuition as the patterns and visual stories emerge through the process of making art.

My multimedia/painted collages combine acrylic painting with antique sheet music (much of it from my late grandmother), photos, letters and other ephemera to tell a story of long ago lives. My zen folk art ink drawings create an intimate world where working with colors, design and beauty becomes a meditative practice. And through acrylic painting, I celebrate the colors and highlights found in nature to create a feeling of
respect for sublime peace.

I invite those looking at my art to peer closely and find hidden-in-full-view details.

One thought on “Art for Sale incl. Custom Ordering

  1. In 2015 I lost the love of my life, Dave. He was a well rounded man with many interests and I commissioned a drawing by Barbara to commemorate his life & interests. I sent pictures of him, described his many interests, a picture of the house and especially his beloved apple tree and cat, Spike. In January, I received this beautiful creation and I cannot begin to tell you the sense of peace that I have each time I see him smiling on the front porch. This is the memory of Dave that I want to keep. Barbara would send snippets of the artwork to me, collaborate with me on how I would like to see this or that. The surprise in the picture was a “carving” of our initials in a heart in the apple tree!
    If you have sustained a loss in your life, be it an animal or loved one, may I suggest a commissioned art piece done by this wonderful artist, Barbara Hengstenberg. It will provide you with a sense of peace seeing your loved one surrounded in beauty.
    In the interest of full disclosure, Barbara is my sister-in-law Tina Gould’s (the great New England cook featured in Wildesart) sister. I would have written the same comments even if I had not known her for the past 30+ years. Barbara is truly a compassionate and gifted artist.
