Barbra Cropper is an etcher/printmaker who exhibits locally in Cumbria, Lancashire and also nationally. Her work reflects the strong affinity she has with nature. Exotic flowers are discovered in gardens of the world.
'My work is about the beautiful, the exquisite, a flower, lakeland trees, small winged creatures. The image stays in my minds eye long after the impression and pushes me to prepare a plate for etching or monoprint.'
Recently Barbra has looked at trees and flowers surrounding her studio in Cumbria. Another series of work is based on the energy of circles when shades of lilac and purple are used.
'I do not seek to create a likeness but rather a magical moment or thought process which could be an abstract concept.'
