Barbara Bleicher Atwood
I moved to Roosevelt my family on the Winter Solstice, 1998. After an enjoyable nine years teaching art at the Roosevelt Public School, I now am in private practice as an Art Therapist/psychotherapist.
My artwork expresses emotional and psychological forces, where materials including India ink, plaster, beeswax, paper, sticks, and chalk and oil pastels coalesce. The work reflects themes of movement, birth, and relationships. Recurrent forms and figures emerge over time and jump between artworks letting me know they still need attention.
