Barbenette, Barbara Steinberg, Marie-Gabrielle Barbier

From the desk of Barbara Steinberg

I met French illustrator Marie-Gabrielle online. Her drawings made me laugh for years. By chance, I gave her a piece of my writing and asked, "Could you illustrate this?" Out came Barbenette. 


She is an artist, who practices, performs, reflects, and is mired in the Quixotic quest to kill reality. However, life's paparazzi of annoying details refuse to go away, catching Barbenette in the heroic struggle between contentment and interruption.
