Barbara Pease

My current work includes digital art and photography. My experience and education in painting, drawing and sculpture influences me, whether I am framing a shot, creating digital art, or using my earlier work in a digital re-working of the original piece. My technical background supports my camera work, digital editing and my printing.




Muskrat Studio, 111 Rachel Carson Way, Ithaca, NY 14850


Take route 79 west out of Ithaca, about two miles. EcoVillage is on Rachel Carson Way, the first left after West Haven Rd. Take a left onto the access road at Gourdlandia, the first building you see on your left while still on Rachel Carson Way. You will see ample parking nearby. Walk along the access road and take your only right up into the Frog neighborhood group. Take the left side of the pedestrian walkway until you reach 111 Rachel Carson Way. All buildings in EcoVillage have a Rachel Carson Way address whether or not they are actually on that road. This is confusing to first time visitors. Homes are numbered consecutively


When I was working to support a family, I longed to be an artist. I needed the money systems engineering provided, yet I really needed art. My compromise was to make art a serious avocation over the course of my working life. My work included paintings, figurative sculpture, charcoal, graphite, and pen and ink drawings, as well as, photography. Now a few years into retirement I am beginning my life as an artist with poetry, photography and digital art.

I studied art at the Boston School of the Museum of Fine Arts and the University of Massachusetts. I studied with Chuck Close, William Flynn, Mela Lyman, Ralph Helmick and Abby Zonies. My work exists in several private collections in Boston, Cambridge and Ithaca.
