BARBARA CLARK FLEMING
 
BARBARA CLARK FLEMING was born in 1939 in East Zorra, Ontario. A self-taught folk artist, she began painting in 1977 to keep her memories alive of the 150-acre farm she was raised on.

Her warm rural paintings are like snippets from the scrapbook of her memory. Winter scenes of sleigh rides; Spring memories of collecting maple syrup ("sugaring off"); going to church; waiting for the school bus ;or gathering hay on her Father's farm are a few of the images painted by this gifted artist. There is a patchwork like quality to her paintings, as she fits the round edges of the fields and barns together.

Following an accident in 1989, MS.FLEMING began to devote her time exclusively to painting. Her late husband, while ill and partially blind made many of her frames from found barn wood.

She continues to reside in rural Ontario, where her unique ability to capture the timelessness of the area remains her greatest talent. Her work is collected in Canada and the United States by a dedicated group of collectors who admire folk and primitive art.
