Then she went on her travels, to Canada, the States Mexico, Belize and Hawaii. She has always kept sketch-books. She believes drawing matters, and that is of course the skill she uses in illustrating our chapbooks. Even as a child, she was a natural anthologist, liking “poems that made pictures.” Barbara loves Yeats, Bonnard and Beethoven. She has exhibited in Canada, the States and the UK.
