Barb Lougheed

Born in India, I have lived across Canada and in Prague. I have studied with top artists including Harold Klunder, Libby Hague, David Lafrance, Blair Sharp, Gillian King and Hedda Sidla. Over the past 20 years I have worked in a variety of media but in recent years have been painting in oil.

My work is about movement, about the ever evolving animate universe. I see the universe as a place of great wonder, variety and benevolence and try to recreate this lightness in my work, whether I’m dealing with inner symbology or 60’s sci fi culture. Another recurring theme in my work is the non-human creatures with whom we share the planet. I like to celebrate them and represent them in all their dignity and grace. Finally, humour is an important theme, reminding me that I don’t have to take myself too seriously.

I live in Ottawa with my husband Dave and our three cats.
