Barbara Lewis has a degree in Fine Arts from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. with a concentration in ceramics. In 1995 she began to also explore jewelry design, which is her primary focus. Her work in the field of torch-fired enamel has led to regular publications in magazines such as Belle Armoire Jewelry and Handcrafted Jewelry. In addition, North Light Books will release Barbara's book featuring her torch-fired jewelry and the Painting with Fire enameling process in 2011.
Barbara has an active workshop schedule where she teaches at arts centers in Southern Maryland, Annapolis, Northern Virginia, and St. Petersburg, FL. She welcomes individual instruction at her home studio and loves a challenge by doing commissioned work.
