Barbara McCaffrey is a textile artist from Victoria BC. She received a Diploma in Textiles (with distinction) as well as a B.F.A. from the Alberta College of Art & Design in Calgary, AB. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and the U.S. and she was included in the FiberArts Design Book 7, published by Lark Books.
Barbara works in a variety of media, including handmade felt, paper and cloth. Her interest lies in the manipulation of images, material and process, often shifting them from their original context. She embellishes her work with various media and uses machine stitch as a drawing tool to further enhance colour, shape, line and texture. Environmental issues, travel and relationships inform her work.
