Artist:  Barbara Healy

Norton Framing & Gallery welcomes the artwork of Barbara Healy

artist statement

Barbara Edlund Healy’s paintings reflect the quiet beauty of the New England coast.  Oil paintings are inspired by the diverse colors of light, atmosphere and nature.  She uses color to enliven peaceful landscapes, seascapes and gardens.  Her paintings try to be more than a snapshot, giving a feel of the breeze on a summer sail or a memory of an evening walk.  Brushstrokes over glimpses of color intentionally reveal some of the painting process.  A Connecticut native, Barbara fell in love with the area while attending UMASS Dartmouth and stayed. Her degree in textile design has given her a background in color but she often paints plein air to learn from nature.  Her studio in Dartmouth, MA is on the South Coast Artists Open Studio Tour.  She is a Juried Artist Member of the Cape Cod Art Center and board member of Westport Art Group.
