ABOUT THE ARTIST: Barbara Benik
Barbara Benik is a Colorado artist based out of Fort Collins. Her art covers many traditional mediums including pencil, pen and ink, acrylic, oil, watercolor, and digital art. Being a lifelong doodler, she always has sketching materials on hand.
Florals, Landscapes, Animals, and Birds are just a few of the subjects in her work. In 2017, she acquired a motion activated camera to photograph the birds in the backyard, and she uses some of those photos as reference materials for drawings and paintings.
Since moving to Fort Collins in 2016, Barbara has undertaken a garden renovation that has rekindled her love of bird watching. The ongoing goal is to enhance the wildlife habitat in order to attract pollinators and increase the variety of visiting bird species. The garden provides inspiration and is an outdoor studio for creating art.
Barbara was a contributing artist for the Tails of the Painted Cats fundraisers in 2015, 2017, and 2019. Her donations included a painted cat sculpture each of those years, as well as cat-themed paintings.
