Baerbel Kavanaugh

Baerbel won 3rd Prize at a recent juried art show at University Park Country Club. 

Well over 30 artists had admitted more than 150 works.

Baerbel works primarily in oil and her overall style is modern realism.

She approaches each painting as an emotional and intellectual challenge and often her initial ideas of forms and values change completely during the process. Her subjects range from people, to landscapes, to nature and are not an accurate representation of reality, but rather an interpretation of her perceptual experience and her feelings.

Baerbel often works in series. Her latest one is called “Art Fusion” and combines parts of famous paintings to create new compositions and meaning.

The artists that have influenced her most are Fairfield Porter and Wolf Kahn.
