About Veta Barker

I became interested in painting late in my life. I was a fashion designer. Forms, lines, ideas, colors, styles were everything for me. Painting for me was like joy for soul and eyes. I loved museums, exhibitions, art festivals, but that goes parallel with me and didn't cross my mind.
When I moved for living in the USA in Colorado my active life with Fashion stopped, but I opened my heart to amazing Nature in this state and around beautiful America. I was absolutely a city woman. America change me and back to human roots, to Earth value, made me stop and "smell the roses". I started jealously watching and studying painters. I then started to want to paint and I wanted to have fun with that. The abstract style was more close to designing and I decided to try that. I felt abstract very well and loved this expression form of art. I start my painting with acrylic and I worked hard and many times repainted my canvas. It's hard for me to paint in one style and Technics. I grabbed canvas, brushes, knives and never know what would happen next or which way I would paint. I love experiments. Right now my painting goes to the mix between impressionism and abstract.
I'm still studying Art and I'm waiting for my "WOW!" moment and I'm painting my abstract and impressionistic compositions, flowers, trees, landscapes in oil and acrylic.
Sorry, I sell my paintings online, I'm a Commercial artist. I'm not using galleries and I'm not doing exhibitions.
Thank you.
Best regards,
