An unexpected and profound loss of a unique and brilliant artist and friend. Barbara was almost larger than life itself. She was literate and well travelled. Her creativity was fearless and her paintings around the world reflect her dynamic style. She was a loyal and warm hearted friend whose spirit remains with us.
You never say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only god knew why.
It broke our heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day god took you home.

Barbara was a great pal to look at art with. Any artist cherishes these special people. We also took the masters courses at Georgian college with Susan Rothenberg & Eric Ficshel together, which was great fun & a real learning experience. I am sorry to hear that she fell into such miserable health issues. We all fear them. Condolences to her family.
I just learned today that Barbara passed away and am shocked. We took an experimental art course at The Ontario College of Art together and went out occasionally for dinners and drives in the countryside. She was one of a kind and lived life her way. She was kind and generous and although we didn’t see eye to eye all the time, we agreed to disagree. I feel very sad that she will no longer be around Manu Life in her short skirt, jean jacket and her hair in spikes. RIP. Please let me know when there will be a celebration of her life as I want to attend. Abbie Goldhar
In our life we didn't always see eye to eye and traveled different roads.
Rest in Peace
