Barbara Pierson



Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Barbara Pierson trained as an actor and spent many years touring in the UK and abroad, eventually settling in the Essex coastal town of Wivenhoe. Perhaps it is because of her roots in the theatre that a sense of implicit narrative pervades her painting albeit elusive.


Though essentially a painter of landscapes, her paintings often draw upon half-remembered images perhaps from plays, imagined characters, moments caught in time and forgotten fragments of text, these are then fused with the environment that surrounds her – the mud flats, water meadows, big skies and sea.
