About Barbara Anna Knauf

Born in Germany, Barbara Anna Knauf (also known as Anna K.) studied art in Berlin and was also privileged to study Chinese Water Color painting with 90-year old Professor Liu from Shanghai in Sausalito, California. She has studied various art media forms at Lighthouse Ctr of the Arts in Tequesta, Jupiter, Florida and also in Arezzo, Italy. She began exhibiting her Impressionist painting work at the Artist Gallery of Palm Beach, Beyond Décor, Palm Beach, Lighthouse Ctr. for the Arts in Jupiter, The Village Art Studios, Tequesta and Partners on Design in Tequesta. Barbara is a member of th American Impressionist Society. She recently had her first art and book exhibit in Kansas City at Affaire, as well as the Kansas City Artist Coalition exhibit in November 2013. In 2014 she joined Images Art Gallery in Kansas City as a juried-in member. The website is; www.imagesartgallery.org.

A selection of her oil paintings are now in collections in Germany, California, Florida, Iowa, New York, Ohio and Missouri.

The artist moved from Florida to Kansas City, MO in 2012 and has her studio in the Leawood area. Visitors are welcome with prior appointment.
Barbara also offers custom children's and pet's portraitures at reasonable prices in either oil on canvas or pastels on Museum quality paper.

She has written and illustrated three children's books. They are titled: 'When I Was Little In The Old Country' (Memories of a German Grandmother) and 'The Wiener Dog and the Bear', (whimsical poems for children ages 2 to 100). The third book is titled 'A Tale of a Beautiful Land'. It is an environmental and historical book for children ages six to twelve. All books are available on Amazon.com and are in stock. 'A Tale of a Beautiful Land' is also available on www.Lulu.com and Amazon.com as an e-book.

A book containing 126 pages of poetry by Barbara, plus awesome orchid photography by Phillip Flusche, was published on www.Lulu.com in 2012. It is available on Amazon.com, plus Lulu.com. It is titled 'Brushstrokes of Life' with over sixty poems and over 30 photographs of exquisite Florida orchids. The glossy cover shows a beautiful special spray of white phalaenopsis. The subtitle is 'A Collection of Poems, Thoughts and Lyrics'. It is a remarkable work of art in both poetry and photography.

Barbara's quote as to her painting art: 'For me oil painting is not an exact replica of what we see - photography does that perfectly for us- but painting is an expression of the artists' interpretation of reality, a more complicated process. My art takes its inspiration from reality and then transposes it into a visual expression in another form of that reality. Art is also not just decorative but through the ages was an important medium to raise consciousness about social and human problems in society. At this time I am also interested in world wild life extinction and the peaceful co-existence of all people and animals on the planet.This is, as we all know, a huge global problem today'.
