Barbara had a dream when she was 19 years old, "Someday I'll have my own art studio and people from all over the world will come." The years passed by, she raised her children while working as a full-time Social Worker, who later became an Indigenous Cultural Art Instructor spending more than a few decades away from her dream.  But one day, after my"John C. Maxwell Certification" as a speaker, coach and trainer she quit her 9 to 5 job and Native Studio Art was born! She was scared! But she jumped and built her wings by pursuing her dream to inspire others through the arts and to help them build their creative confidence to follow their dreams.
