The Manhattan-born Mildred Barrett is a woman to whom painting is capturing the mood of the subject with an exceptional use of color.
Barrett's training includes the Art Students League, the National Academy of Fine Arts, and the Brooklyn Museum Art School. She has traveled extensively through which the theme and style of her work was created and developed.
Barrett has had numerous one-woman shows on Madison Avenue in New York and in galleries on Long Island and her works have been sold and re collected all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. Her paintings are also on permanent display at Bergdorf Goodmans Nenas Choice Gallery. There is a simplicity and charm in Barretts work which is enhanced by her remarkable feeling for color. Her impressionistic style captures the mood of the subject - figures which are unique in themselves in certain poses and expressions. Her canvases glow with flowers which look as though they have just been picked.
Barrett is considered one of the finest female artists, certainly, living in the United States today. Of her success, she modestly says it happened all by itself - "I put my time in six or seven days a week beginning at 5 or 6:00 AM. My only problem is that I like my paintings so much that I hate to see them sold."
