Born of English and Trinidadian parents, Barbara Turney Wieland ( BTW) shared her childhood between England and Australia and as an adult has traveled and lived within Australia, Asia and Europe. She has been living and working in Switzerland for the past 10 years.
It was in Australia that she developed her fascination for strong colours, transparent and luminous; for wild and mysterious landscapes. In Europe for the strong sense of history and stories, linking people of all kinds on the pathways of life.
Instinctive, she allows herself to be guided by her subconscious, playing a subtle game between what is real and what is imagined; by what her heart dreams and her hand creates.
