Barbie Guitard was born and raised in Campbellton NB. She is a self taught artist and as a very young child, she knew that one day paint would give her vivid imagination 'life'. Barbie Guitard has been painting for over 25 years in many different styles - but she has found a love for creating figurative and abstract realism. As an artist, she feels that art is an amazing platform for outwardly expressing oneself. She prefers to focus on subject matter that hints at global social problems that need more awareness, such as, the distress our oceans are in. She is currently working on a series of paintings called "Mistress of the Rings" that will bring attention and awareness to our rivers and oceans that are being mistreated and destroyed.
Aside from painting, over the years she has been active in the fields of graphic design, working in the publishing industry where she guided new authors through the publishing process. It enabled her to offer her artwork to a new avenue of clientele. She has worked on several books and also created and has had her art featured on the covers of F1Diaries as well as The Ghosts Of Madison Indiana.
She is presently proceeding with a dream of hers to open a studio to teach painting to new students. This exciting new business, STudio 4B, will be opening soon in Campbellton, New Brunswick and will bring the wonderful world of painting instruction to the community. "If I can create passion for art in just one soul....I've done what I set out to do." For her, the fun and freedom to explore ideas through painting is just beginning.
You can see some of her artwork at FineartAmerica.com where you can purchase art prints, phone covers, cards, handbags, duvets featuring her art work.
