Portrait of Brent Baribeau

Christa Baribeau remembers constantly drawing portraits at age five in a little log cabin while her mother visited her friend. A self-taught artist with a passion for painting portraits, she has taken her work into painting animals as well. She often searches for old discarded items such barn wood to paint on, turning the pieces into recycled artworks.

With encouragement from her husband, family, and friends, Baribeau has begun painting in the style of Pennsylvania folk artist Edward Hicks and taking inspiration from other early American folk art classics.

At times she and her husband, Brent, a traditional wood arver, merge their creativity to produce such folk art objects as carved wooden dolls and painted cupboards.

She and her husband live on a 10-acre farmstead in Michigan with their dog, cats, chickens, and peacocks. They enjoy spending time with the families of their five grown children.
