About the Artist:

Barbara Westfall
I create art because I love to. I don’t mass produce art; I make art one piece at a time, giving each piece my full attention and care. I start out with an idea and end up with a finely-crafted object. My mother taught me art is beautiful and necessary and encouraged my creativity. My father was a design-builder in the Chicago area. I grew up with blueprints on the dining room table, seeing people make things by hand and the belief that art is essential to our lives.
