Through every stage of her life- birth and early childhood in Indonesia, youth in Holland and America, graphic design studies and current home in Vienna – the creation of images and drawing have been Barbara Huppmann’s most constant and important means of giving to and expressing herself.
Barbara has lived in Vienna, Austria for the past 50 years. She was married to a musician and has 5 adult children, all of whom are musicians. Her work in graphic design ranges from illustrations for children to wall decoration; from the design and creation of outlandish children’s clothing to the fabrication of dolls and dollhouses. A mother of five, she holds a special place in her heart for illustration and design with and for children.
