Barbara Teusink is an award winning artist whose work is represented in private collections across the southeast. A contemporary realist, Barbara’s subjects include still life, floral, portrait, figure and landscape. A relative newcomer to the field, Barbara began her artistic studies in November 2012 after retiring from a professional career in educational technology. She continually seeks to improve through diligent self-study, weekly classes and occasional workshops. She strives to capture and preserve the fleeting moments of life; an expression or gesture, the light, the season, or a striking arrangement of objects. Barbara lives in Chapin with her husband, two dogs and cat.
