Artist Statement Anita M. Barnard is a visual artist, working in glass, cement, paint, mosaic and collage, exhibiting in the Fort Worth area and internationally. Two of her collages were shown in Bremen, Germany then traveled to New Zealand where they appeared in four gallery shows in 2007. Collage, mixed media work, mosaics and jewelry have appeared in various shows in the DFW area and around the US.

Anita is often inspired by the world around her: the way things grow: vines and leaves, architecture, colors, the work of other artists, thoughts about poetry, myths, events in her life, and the natural beauty in the stones and glass and other materials in her mosaics.

Anita is also a writer who has co-edited five poetry anthologies, most recently Above Us Only Sky, as Incarnate Muse Press, and edited the anthology Sense of Touch (Entangled Muse). Her poetry has recently appeared in Illya’s Honey, Borderlands, and the 2008 Texas Poetry Calendar. She was a finalist in New Millennium Writings’ 18th Consecutive Contest. She was a finalist for the 2007 Muriel Craft Bailey Memorial Award; the selected poem appeared in the Fall/Winter issue of The Comstock Review. Her poem Red was nominated for the 2008 Pushcart Prize.

She lives in Fort Worth and spends weekends tending her rural land in NE Texas where she hopes to someday have a retreat for writers and artists. Her still-evolving website is Works are available at the Etsy shops and

As far as I am concerned, a painting speaks for itself. What is the use of giving explanations, when all is said and done? A painter has only one language. ~Pablo Picasso
