Barbara ThibodeauxBiography: Barbara Steele Thibodeaux, American Contemporary Folk Artist, of the Louisiana and Mississippi areas, draws deeply from the wellspring of the rich cultural heritage of those areas in her work, including her own family history. Self-taught, she began painting in 1990, and has a naïve style that delights collectors from all corners of the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and as far as China. Thibodeaux’s meticulous attention to detail and willingness to communicate on the life and times of the people and artifacts that intrigue both her loyal collectors and people who encounter her work for the first time have contributed to her growing stature as an accomplished artist of the folk art genre. Barbara Steele Thibodeaux concentrates mostly on scenes from the past...American Primitive Portraits, Biblical Verses, Cajun Art, and scenes from the Old South. In addition to being owned by private collectors worldwide, her work has been shown in Galleries such as: America Oh Yes!
