Howdy!  My name is Barra Gustafson.  I am a visual artist  living in Austin, Texas.  My work is changes over time as does my materials on wood panels, paper or canvas.  I enjoy creating art that celebrates the imagination. Currently, I build multi layered paintings through self expression. I search to find joy and playful ways to be spontaneous during the process and rely heavily on intuitive responses.  The excitement of not knowing what will happen next generates a high level of energy that keeps me in the moment.

Painting allows me total freedom to be me while following the desires of my heart.

  1. I enjoy looking at your colorful paintings and site! p.s. I had a best friend growing up named Alice Gustafson…and my family is of Larson’s = scandanavians! Thanks for visiting my blog.

    • Hi Lissa,

      Thank you for the kind words. Awesome–go scandanavians! My husband’s hertiage is Sweden,and he has heard many times of the Larson name up in Iowa. I think the name Alice Gustafson has a nice ring to it–best friends are shared hearts forever.
