Barbara Wolfe is a local Baltimore painter and florist. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Barbara’s work has always been the use of the brushstroke. She developed her painterly sensibility during her studies at the Maryland Institute of Art where she was influenced by the work of Lucien Freud and John Singer Sargent. Although the matter of her paintings has changed throughout the years from figure narrative to landscape and ultimately florals they are connected through an appreciation for the movement and texture that can be created on the canvas with oils. Her love for travel has cultivated a deep interest in Natures beauty and ultimately led her to a career in Floral Design. It is from this that she draws inspiration for her new body of work.
