    Barbara Weir is one of Australia’s leading artists and her artworks have been collected and exhibited around the world for over two decades. Her journey has been one of extraordinary courage and fortitude, taken away as a young girl from her family as one of Australia's Stolen Generation.

    The breakthrough in Barbara’s career came with an overseas visit to Paris and Switzerland in 1996, where at the request of a European gallery she was commissioned to create a collection of works for exhibition. Her work created during that time was overwhelmingly popular with local collectors and the collection was a sell out. With confidence riding high, she grew in great demand, later having successful exhibitions in Australia, across Europe, Japan, United States, Mexico and Fiji.

    Later in 1996, after the death of Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Barbara concentrated on developing her skill and style, particularly of her Grass Seed paintings which became her most collectable works during the 1990’s and early 00’s. Inspired by a small grass found in Utopia called Lyaw, these paintings consist of a series of small brush strokes that overlap and weave to create a swaying effect like that of native grass.
