| Evolution of an Artist, a short biography and a statement |
Barbara Greene graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan in 1973. She was an orIginal member of a group of new artists, the Tribes of Cass Corridor who changed the face of Detroit's artscape.
She continues to fight through her art for basic freedoms for all.
She says the first fifteen years built up her pictorial vocabulary, as she looked and
studied composition, perspective, color theory,and form.
These are the building blocks of all the objects in my painting.
Ms.Greene married and now is Ms. Mann. In 2000 she began a new style of painting and saved herself from unimaginable difficult times. First I healed myself, rewriting my life by painting new endings to old scenarios.
Next Ms. Mann painted avatars to save our communities and homelands.Then Tyrants and Terrorists and one day she will paint peace.
i want to speak with the world, even help and influence others through my work.
This is my art and the things I enjoy and feel are important. As always I paint with
love, humor, and satirical wit.
