Barbara Price at Oriel Y Parc


Barbara Price

Barbara Price has been living in Pembrokeshire since 1992 and has become a popular artist, exhibiting and selling her work widely. She taught for some time but since lockdown she has decided to retire from teaching despite the pleasure sharing her skills over the past 25 years has given her. She now concentrates on her painting.

She says of her work: “My paintings take me on a journey from one subject to another and I often use different media. I cannot say I have a favourite medium except the medium I use at the moment. The Textile influence can be seen throughout my work in my use of colour and tonal values. I paint mainly about my world and things that inspire me – rural scenes of farming life, which has changed over the years, which is my theme at the moment.

“Colours , like our lives, are affected by the constant change of light, environment and time of day. I am constantly trying to capture this ‘magic’ in my work. I enjoy dividing the images up and mix lots of different shades and tones of the same colour to somehow try to capture the amazing light and colours of Pembrokeshire. Living here in north Pembrokeshire gives me an endless supply of inspiration with its unique wildnessShadows have become an obsession for me as the colours are transformed into myriad mysterious dark tones.”

The studio ready for autumn

Recently, sadly, Barbara lost her husband after a short illness, and her mother soon after. She says: “I have been painting my way through my grief.”
