Barbara Mierau-Klein is a digital artist recognized for her multi-layered, imaginative and colorful fine art images. A native of Germany, Barbara now lives in the Washington, D.C. area but often travels the world as a passionate landscape and nature photographer since her teenage years.
Barbara discovered digital art several years ago and became so fascinated that it turned into a full-time pursuit. 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 like books, song lyrics, movies, nature, and works of other artists, old masters as well as contemporary digital artists.
Barbara’s work has been exhibited at the Heaven Art Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Orenda Gallery in Reno, Nevada. She has had eight top-ten placements in online juried art competitions at the Light Space Time Art Gallery and Fusion Art Gallery over the past year. Her work has also appeared regularly in Living the Photo Artistic Life Magazine and Fine Eye Magazine with a feature article on her work in August 2018.
With her digital art creations, Barbara seeks to impart a sense of wonder and invite the viewer to step into a different reality for a brief moment.
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 an imaginative layering of the original photography, whimsical or even surreal elements, rich textures, and other effects.
I love the creative possibilities of digital art that allow me to design something new that transcends the underlying photography and takes me to a different world. I hope my art captures your imagination as well, resonates with you, and makes you pause and wonder if only for a moment. Barbara’s website: www.barbaramierauklein.com
