Barbara Boedeker Works

Barbara Boedeker
I try to capture the simplicity and feeling of primitive art forms (mostly Native American) and present them in a modern way.  My Great, great Grandmother was Native American, so I have always had a keen interest in the part of my heritage.  I draw inspiration from petroglyphs, pictographs, painted hides, sand paintings as well as pottery of the mimbres.  I am also inspired by the prehistoric painted caves of France (several of which I had the opportunity to visit).  I use acrylic paintings and a wax resist technique to achieve the unique style of my paintings
