Barbara Levine: From The Garden and Beyond



JCA Amherst (742 Main St, Amherst, MA 01002, Amherst MA)

**Throughout my career, I have worked both as a painter and as a tapestry weaver. My work has always been strongly influenced by the natural world and my quest to interpret its deeper structure, be it through Egg Tempera, Oil, Gouache, Pastel or Watercolor.**

**The phenomena of nature, exhibited in flowers and butterflies, and their manifestations of tremendous natural energy--creatively transformed through the act of painting and weaving--exert a special force on my being. I am always experiencing the intense spiritual effect of color and minute structures: these provide the mainspring of my creative impulse.**
