About her process …

  • Why I make art is because my first introduction to art was in the second grade , and I was introduced to the Dutch masters . I just loved how it made me feel and took me to another peaceful place. Art has always brought me through trying times .
  • A lot of my art work is 2-D so I start with an old photo and then add items to make a theme .
  • My favorite art work is 2-D collage because when I make a piece it is one of a kind and I can’t make duplicates .
  • I do not have a formal art degree , so I’m mostly self taught , I read a lot and have had a few mini classes.
  • I also taught after school art and summer school art classes for 6 years at Lundy Elementary in Lowell, Or. This is my all time favorite piece , it sold in the Mayor’s Art show in Eugene, Or. It is made of pheasant feathers put on the bird house just the way they came off the bird starting from the head which is on the top of  the house .

Barbara Anheluk – Artist Bio – A Self-Taught Mixed Media Assemblage Artist

Barbara lives on a hazelnut farm in Fall Creek, OR.  Her work is detailed with textures, color, vintage papers and photos which create a story or convey a concept.

The materials that she uses are typically found in antique shops, flea markets, or while talking a walk on her farm.  She likes to begin her piece with a vintage photo and conceptualize an event that person may have encountered during their lifetime.  Then the work begins of trying to find the perfect item that will enhance the piece.

You can see Barbara’s work in several Somerset and Artitude magazines.  She was featured in the Eugene Mayor’s Art Show, MECCA Afterlife, Flying Turtle Gallery and Touch Stone Gallery.

If you would like to get in contact with Barbara please email us here and we will forward your message along to her.
