Barbi Larkins

Artist at Large


I believe in magic.

It surrounds us everyday, if we choose to take the time to look. You can feel it in the rush of the wind as it dances with you. You can hear it whisper to you through the trees. You can see it in the eyes of a friend.

I paint a wide variety of subjects in an almost equally wide variety of styles. I paint life both as I see it and as I imagine it. Life is eclectic. I like it that way.

I am based in the beautiful Lyttelton Harbour just outside of Christchurch, New Zealand, where I live with my husband, Roger.

I hope you enjoy my magical little world. Give me a shout if you have any comments or questions. I’d love to hear from you.
