When she moved to Oswego in 1978 she began taking ceramics classes at SUNY, Oswego.

Those classes provided the opportunity to explore the art (and challenge) of creating hand-built as well as wheel-thrown ceramic pieces. Her work includes both decorative and functional forms.

Currently Barbara creates her clay pieces at Firefly Studio in Sterling.

By day Barbara works as a psychiatric nurse practitioner at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse.

She has done undergraduate and graduate work in Boston, Charlottesville and Syracuse.

The mother of two daughters, Sarita and Laura, Barbara lives with her husband, Robert, in Oswego.

Lakeside Artisans will hold an artists’ open house for prospective members on June 12 from 6-8 p.m.

Please RSVP by June 5.
