I am so excited to share my good news, I am honored to have Tobey Hospital in Wareham purchase 11 of my artworks for their new wound treatment unit. The artworks are throughout the waiting room, hallways, and patient rooms, I hope they brighten someone’s day when they need it most.

Thank you to Phil Oliveira and his wife Olivia, for funding this project.
The Oliveras are dedicated to creating patient-focused facilities. I heard that staff and patients are very enthusiastic about the addition of local artist Barbara Healy’s beautiful coastal images as they provide a warm ambiance in the center and give patients a restful focus while receiving ongoing care.

Thank you to my local art broker, Denn Santoro at S&G Project Gallery Art Brokerage. S&G is committed to always working with local artists and installations in local businesses.

In this project all the artwork was mine, some works were original paintings while others were reproductions. Reproductions and framing were done through Riverside Art in Somerset.

I had an exhibit at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library in October, Sail Away with Me, which included many boat paintings and a few not marine.
