Greta Mae Barnard
Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Greta attended art school at Warren Wilson College in the mountains of North Carolina. There she studied printmaking, bookbinding, and old time music while living on a 300-acre farm. She returned to her hometown in 2008 and now lives in a house full of animals and stringed instruments. Her work is strongly influenced by the surrounding farm land, and her admiration for the natural world shows itself in her love of simple forms, contrasting textures, and gradation of color. Much of her free time is spent making baked goods, raising chickens, and slowly killing her house plants. Greta is a Jewelers of America Certified Senior Sales Professional.
