Barbara Edlund Healy's paintings capture the quiet beauty of the south coast. Oil paintings and watercolors are inspired by the diverse colors of light, atmosphere and nature. She uses color to enliven peaceful landscapes, seascapes and gardens. Her paintings try to be more then a snapshot, giving the feel of a summer sail or memory of an evening walk. A Connecticut native, Barbara fell in love with the south coast area while attending UMASS Dartmouth and stayed. Her degree in textile design has given her a background in color but often paints plein air to learn from nature. Her studio is in Dartmouth MA.
