“I wholeheartedly believe in the restorative powers of art. Through my oil paintings and murals I hope to bestow a moment of stillness and beauty to my viewers and collectors. “ - Barbara Eberhart
Barbara Eberhart has been refining her flawless blended oil paint style during her 40-year career as a professional artist. Her work is part of countless private collections throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Central America. She is most known for her elegant florals, which celebrate the gifts of Mother Earth and explore spiritual connection, inner-peace, and the power of love. She is devoted to bringing joy and beauty to her collectors and viewers through her work, and believes in art as a spiritual experience that nourishes the soul.
Barbara earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from California State University, Sacramento before moving to the Hawai’i, where she lived for 32 years. There she was awarded the State Acquisition Award where her work was purchased for Hawaii's permanent collection.
