About me

Location Switzerland
Introduction Barbara Streiff's work reflects all cultures, all religions, and all time. Born on 1 August 1955 in Lucerne - the heart of Switzerland – Barbara Streiff spent her childhood in the Swiss Alps in the Linth Valley of Glarus. From her first contact with art at age seven, she began learning traditional art techniques from her family and older artists. Later she studied art at l' École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, the School of Art and Design Zurich, and the Centre of Cultural Heritage in Cyprus, where she also taught. Travels relating to her work and exhibitions have taken her throughout Europe and the world – from Asia to the Arabic states, from California to Africa, and most recently from Cyprus to Brazil. Barbara Streiff's primal geometry art not only reflects the profound meld of nature and human cultures worldwide, but each piece also symbolizes her own personal passion: To further the evolution and transformation of traditional art into innovative and modern forms by communicating with artists all over the world without forgetting the forests of the Swiss Alps.
