Creating or being in a creative state of mind is center to Barbara McGuire’s being. Somewhere in between her passion and calling, she finds a void that offers peace, grounding, and a place to re-discover life's potentials and priorities. For Barbara, creating is a presence of constant beginnings even with the most mundane of familiar experiences. Something as simple as a circle can be the most profound of choices when it comes to design balance. The beauty reflected in nature is paramount in providing endless discovery as she endeavors to share and celebrate the creativity in each of us.
