Barbara Mierau-Klein is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning digital artist and photographer. She is based in the Washington, DC area but she travels extensively indulging in her passion for landscape and nature photography. She has enjoyed the art of photography ever since she was handed a $2 promotional color film camera as a teenager.

For Barbara photography is all about capturing the beauty of landscapes and nature and her images reflect her fascination with the beauty of color and light. One of Barbara’s ambitions with her images is to capture the deep emotions that touch all of us when setting eyes for the first time on a breathtaking scene.

In recent years, Barbara discovered the art of digital compositing and collage and much of her current work includes her exploration of the layering of textures and effects created by this technique. This results in rich textures that add complexity to her art. Her artwork encompasses a wide variety of subjects, including highly stylized cityscapes and nature scenes.

Barbara has published several fine art photography books. Her work is exhibited in galleries online, in the USA and Europe and has been published in numerous international magazines.
