barbara bone groom
Ms. Groom is a colorist. Her narrative work displays a wry sense of humor, and
highlights the incongruities in our world. In her impressionistic work, she condenses
the landscape into color, mood, and emotion. Beauty is abstracted to its essence.
She grew up in the midwest and, with her husband and three children, has lived in
many places, including Austria, England and Italy. Her interest in photography began
fifteen years ago and she developed her skills at the Maine Media Workshops. She
is currently mentored by David H. Wells.
She has won awards in juried national and international shows, including the Griffin
Museum of Photography, Vermont Photographic Workplace, the International Photography Awards, and
was part of a four-person group show, "Connections," at the Maine Media Gallery.
In collaboration with her sister, Susan Bone Annable, she created a comparative photography exhibition
entitled, "Two Sisters Two Lenses," shown at The Box Factory, St. Joseph, Michigan.
A freelance writer, she has written travel articles for "international Living," and now resides in Albuquerque,
