*Artist: Barbara Lager
Born and raised in Chicago, IL a graduate of Illinois State University. I have always been a creative spirit throughout my life in one form or another painting, poetry and music. Years of experimentation have gone into creating my unique mixed metal anodized metalscapes. Each piece is created by cutting and layering hand-anodized Niobium and Aluminum. The colorful pieces of metals are then chased, engraved, carefully drilled and riveted together. What inspires me to create each piece is my longing to make people smile and tell a whimsical tale. I have been selling my art successfully throughout the U.S. since 1990. I now reside in St. Paul, MN with my wonderfully creative husband Daniel and two sons Nick and Parker.
