Paintings, Drawings, Mixed Media & Forest Floor Microcosms
About the Artist
Barbara Krans Jenkins most enjoys selecting forest floor microcosms from the abundant flora and fauna around her to paint (whether two or three dimensionally), always mindful to capture the delicate ecological balance of her subjects in their environment. Her subjects span the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near home, across our land to the headlands of Northern California. To date, her work has been published in eight books.
Barbara finds her art process to be a renewing, healing process. As she works, she is transported to a quiet place with God. Time vanishes as she works, pondering in awe, and the marvelous works of the Master Creator in nature. She says, “I hope my work imparts my passion and reverent appreciation of our land and its Maker.”
