Barnett began her formal training at only nine years of age. She became known through her paintings of people, but it was her love of animals that brought her back to her passion of painting dogs 15 years later. Her client list includes busy New Yorkers to bustling Londoners. Barnett’s paintings exalt the horse to an almost spiritual level. Awarded signature membership in the Pastel Society of America and the American Society of Portrait Artists, Barnett has been described by collectors, gallery owners, and critics alike as “one of the most gifted animal painters of our day.” Her exquisite artistic talent and years of experience allow her to create breathtakingly memorable portraits of horses.
