Artist’s Statement

portrait 2

Barbi Leifert is a dancer turned artist. For her,  joy exists in music and dance. Her use of shape and color  capture the arcs and angles made by a dancer’s movements- this is her idea of beauty and harmony. Her lifelong love of dance is behind her Dancer’s Palette and Moving Meditations series.

“When I make a painting, I wait for the balance of color to line and form.   I trust the process to always get me there.  I paint in layers so that each layer comes through in the final artwork.  It is always an unforeseen process resulting in the serendipitous.  I stop painting when moments of beauty emerge in the artwork.
