Barbara Byers was born in Denver, Colorado in the middle of the twentieth century. She studied art at The University of Colorado, Western State College of Colorado, and The Community College of Denver. She learned sign painting from working with several masters of the art, in Denver and Albuquerque. For 35 years, she has lived and worked in New Mexico, painting signs, teaching kids with special needs and making art.

Much of what she notices in the world comes from the opportunity shes had to visit many countries and cultures on five continents. Her heart home is on the Colorado Plateau and in the deserts of the Southwestern United States. Teaching Special Education in Albuquerque Public Schools for 18 years was an overwhelming and rewarding focus. Retired from the public schools, Barbara currently lives and works, in Albuquerque, with her partner of 29 years, poet Margaret Randall. They have a working home where the most important areas are their respective studios.
