Barb Flunker, lives in St Louis MO, USA, with her husband and two dogs. As a self taught artist, Barb’s powerful abstract paintings, defined by color, movement and texture, draw inspiration from her home, nature and travel. Using her hands and non traditional materials, the artist intuitively spreads the thick, textural oils onto the canvas. The luscious artworks take minimally three months to dry. The artist is grateful to all who have supported her in her artistic journey.
Barb’s work is included in the Rick Frimmel/ Gary Werth Collection, the Michael Staenberg Collection and others.
