Her love for the arts started in Paris 20 years ago, and it hasn't stopped since. There, Barbara took painting and drawing lessons at the Parsons School and classes with various Parisian painting masters. Later she relocated back to Santa Cruz Bolivia, her hometown, to start a prolific production of paintings for seven years while exhibiting around the country and studying printmaking at NUR University. In 2004, she moved to Miami and worked at Frederic Snitzer Gallery for almost two years. Also, she transferred credits from NUR University and continued her studies at New World School of the Arts for six years. She graduated in 2012, Cum Laude, with a double major in Graphic Design and Digital Media. She obtained her Museum Studies Certificate at Florida International University (FIU) in 2015.
She assisted at the Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry from 2012 to 2016. In September 2015 she opened ABC Silkscreen shop, where she helps creatives make their printed related projects come alive. From 2015 to 2016 she interned at the FIU-Wolfsonian Museum, assisting Frank Luca in curating the show: Boxeo y Béisbol: The Cuba-U.S. Sports Exchange.
She enrolled in the MFA in Visual Arts: Curatorial Practice program at FIU, in 2016. As part of her degree, she organized the exhibition Form as Context (July 2017) at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum. She expects to receive her MFA in 2019.
