First Place Masters winner in the CCAL 2021 and 2022 Juried Shows, Barbara Teusink is an artist whose work is represented in private collections across the USA and Canada. A contemporary realist, Barbara’s subjects include still life, floral, portrait, figure and landscape. Her paintings have won numerous awards at the State and Local level.

Working primarily in oils, Barbara began her artistic studies in November 2012 after retiring from a professional career in educational technology. She continually seeks to improve through diligent self-study, weekly classes and occasional workshops. She strives to capture and preserve the beauty all around us in the fleeting moments of life; an expression or gesture, the light, the season, or a striking arrangement of objects. Barbara lives in Chapin with her husband, dog and cat.

A very active member of the Crooked Creek Art League, Barbara has served in numerous roles including two terms as president. She currently serves as Webmaster and Social Media Manager as well as Community Arts Project Chair.
