Barbara Halladay is a visual artist living and working on Wolfe Island. Her love for literature and the arts prompted her to become (eventually) a teacher, a vocation from which she has since retired. Barbara has thrown her energies into creating art, a passion for which she never found enough time while gainfully employed.
For these pieces from the collection "Prom Might", Barbara was driven by flights of fancy--bright colours, promises, and youthful energy. Each square foot represents an evening that begins with the imagination and dreams, with subtle suggestions of the angst that accompanies anticipation.
Full disclosure: Though enchanted by the fantasies of the prom dress, Barbara has never attended Prom!
