Bärbel Smith


"Bärbel is a Canadian by heart and German born. Growing up she spent numerous hours with her sketch book and paints capturing the lakes and forests of rural Ontario .

Later she moved out west where she received her training at Alberta University of the Arts. Living in four provinces and also traveling throughout Canada has allowed her to capture the Canadian landscape in her emotive paintings, infusing her art with joyous colours, a peaceful vision, and whimsical style.

She is a juried signature member of two national and one provincial art organization, and is represented by five galleries throughout Canada. Her extensive body of work is in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally.

Currently she resides with her hubby of 45 years near Green Valley Ontario surrounded by forests where she paints full time."
