Art from the Heart

Celebrate your Valentines weekend with an artist who truly speaks from the heart. Please join us Saturday February 15th from 7-10pm for opening night for modern multi-media artist, Barbara Marker’s exhibit “Art from the Heart.” German born artist, Barbara Marker, always knew in her heart that she wanted to be an artist. After winning an art scholarship, she continued to develop herself by attending art schools in New York, Iowa, and San Diego. She has completed most of her artwork since the 70’s here in San Diego.

Her highly imaginative artwork of the fantasy realm is an evocative showcase of classic fantasy icons such as fairies, mermaids, and unicorns. She is also known for her animal portraits which clearly convey human emotion as expressed through a new perspective. Barbara has also made a name for herself in the comic book world, and has colored cover art for DC Comics, Eclipse Comics, and Dark Horse Comics and various others. She has also featured her work in the “Artist Alley” at the San Diego Comic Convention, Artist's Alley at Wondercon and Comic-Fest.
