American Impressionist Barbara Mock, is well known for her art, prints and posters of flowers and still lives, peaceful scenes, charming cottages, ivy-framed birdhouses, whimsical gardening angels, delicate tea pots and tea cups and colorful dried flower wreaths.
Her unique style of oil painting is structured with a strong sense of design and embellished with brush strokes varying from thin to bold. Barbara creates art, prints and posters with delicate lace patterns and strong substantive blends of subdued color in subtle contrast with an inner strength and romantic flavor so perfect for traditional decor.
Barbara's art career started in grade school where she was active in all art activities in her home town of Guthrie, Oklahoma until she finished high school. Barbara then married Jim Mock and they had two children, Jeffrey and Cheryl. During the next 20 years, the Mock family lived in Dallas Texas, Coral Springs Florida and finally settled in Atlanta Georgia. During her stay in each city, Barbara continued to work at her art by exhibiting art, prints and posters at local shows, teaching and studying with such noted artists as Richard Geotz, JoAnn McCrary, Raymond Froman, Bud Biggs and Naomi Brotherton.
