Barbara Mierau-Klein is a digital artist recognized for her multi-layered, imaginative and colorful fine art images. A native of Germany, Barbara lives in the Washington, D.C. area but often travels the world as a passionate landscape and nature photographer since her teenage years. Much of Barbara’s work is highly stylized and focuses on beautiful moments and evocative moods across a wide range of subjects. The inspiration for her images comes from many sources, often her own nature photography, but also books, song lyrics, movies, and works of other artists, old masters as well as contemporary digital artists. Barbara’s work has been exhibited in a number of galleries in the US and Europe and has received numerous awards. Her images also appear regularly in international art magazines. Barbara is represented locally by Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda, MD.
I love to create multi-layered, imaginative and very colorful digital art that invites the viewer to step into a different reality for a brief moment. I am fascinated by the beauty of colors and by the moods and emotions they evoke. I often use very vibrant energizing colors to express vitality and joy, or soothing dreamy hues to impart a sense of mystery and wonder. My images tend to be highly stylized, but still center on recognizable, familiar subjects, ranging from cityscapes to nature and people. I add complexity and intrigue to my art through imaginative layering of the original photography, whimsical or even surreal elements, rich textures and other effects. The creative possibilities of digital art allow me to design something new that transcends the underlying photography and resonates with the viewer’s imagination.
