Houston artist Barbara Biel received her BFA from the University of Texas in Austin, and completed further studies in New York, Houston and Greece. Many private and corporate collections include her canvases and watercolors. Her faith in God along with her love for the plain cross lends inspiration to her artistry.
She works in ceramic to make crosses, hearts, and fleur de lis and then uses gold or silver to hand leaf. The crosses and fleur de lis may be hung or used on tabletop. The hearts may be used as paperweights or just adornment!
