A Trip of a Lifetime in Southern France with Barbara Mathews organised by Rita Carpenter


Barbara’s art is a celebration of color, rich and vibrant, glorious pigments. She feels a need to
constantly invent and search for new ways to see the world around her. Her art is a never ending journey that give her life so much joy! However, nothing that she has ever painted compares to seeing an art student light up with new eyes and become that creative being that we all are.
