"Shell Diary" by Barbara Boward

I want to make things - photographs, prints, collages, mixed media pieces - that people want to live with, maybe even look at every day! I love creating in my studio, whether it's printing or editing, or composing a new work with paper, book spines, paint, and pen. My heart's desire is that the love I feel in creating something does come through to you. My subjects range from trees, animals, and stone angels to old barns, vintage signs, and landscapes that stir memories in us. I can't resist an old stack of dial telephones or a field full of sheep. Interested in the story behind the present moment and how people and landscapes change with time, I hope to offer you a sense of joy reflected in my work. You may find my work at Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum Gift Shop in St. Leonard, Maryland, at Friday's Creek Winery in Owings, Maryland, and over at Facebook & Instagram.
