This online exhibition includes original artwork, art print, greeting cards, and stickers
by Artist Sierra Barnes. In honor of brain tumor awareness month part of the proceeds from this collection will go to the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation.
Sierra Barnes believes that art can heal, and her work aims to be a source of hope and inspiration in others. Her relationship with art began at the age of five to help her express her emotions after being diagnosed with craniopharyngioma (a brain tumor) and undergoing surgery.
Her creative process is guided by intuition and is a reflection of her feelings. Sierra enjoys experimenting with visual elements, including color, medium, and techniques, whilst staying true to her artistic principles. Her work is produced using acrylic and watercolor paints on a variety of substrates, including canvas, wood panels, and paper.
Sierra adds a further dimension to her art by handwriting an original poem on the back of each painting. Sierra’s art and personal story were featured in the book “You’re So Lucky” by Grace Wethor, a book documenting the experiences of brain tumor survivors. The Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation commissioned her to create two artworks that were later presented as awards.
She has exhibited her art in group exhibitions, including a solo exhibition in her artistic career. She has received several awards and has been praised for the optimistic tone and timelessness of her canvases, and she is currently represented by Agora Art Gallery in New York City.
