Barbara Steele Thibodeaux, American Contemporary Folk Artist, draws deeply in her work from the wellspring of the rich cultural heritage of her home in US deep south, including her own family history.

Holding a degree in Interior Design, she is self-taught, and began painting in 1990. She has a naïve style that delights collectors from all corners of the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and as far as China. Thibodeaux's meticulous attention to detail and willingness to communicate on the life and times of the people and artifacts that intrigue both her loyal collectors and people who encounter her work for the first time have contributed to her growing stature as an accomplished artist of the folk art genre.

Barbara Steele Thibodeaux concentrates mostly on scenes from the past...American Primitive Portraits, Biblical Verses, and scenes from the Old South. She especially loves to paint the people and places of Louisiana. In addition to being owned by private collectors worldwide, her work has been shown in Galleries such as:

America. Oh Yes!, Washington, DC

Jackson Municipal Art Gallery, Jackson, Mississippi

Live Oak Emporium, Ridgeland, SC

The Primitive Eye Gallery, Scottsdale, Georgia
Rodetoren4 Galerie Naieve Kunst, Zutphen, the Netherlands
Abita Folk Art, Abita Springs, Louisiana
The Grapevine Gallery, Covington, Louisiana
The Persian Boy Gallery, French Quarter, New Orleans, Louisiana
Royal Street Art, Jackson, Mississippi
Concepts Gallery, Lafayette, Louisiana

Her very first painting was called 'Dinner on the Grounds', and was bought by an artist in Mississippi for $12. That event inspired her to continue, and today her paintings are being enjoyed by folk art fans from around the world.
