Barbara Jeaneva Lloyd
“Art opens a window into my subconscious. My challenge is to capture the elusive bits I find there and allow them to tell a story.
I love to create a distinct atmosphere – of mystery, whimsy, organic movement or the stillness of a frozen lake at dusk. If my art engages the viewer in a satisfying dialogue, I consider it a success.”
After graduating from Kean University of NJ with a Fine Arts degree, B.J. Lloyd taught art for awhile, created the art for many album/CD covers, and opened her own public relations company.
