Barbara Storey is a photographer and digital artist born and now living in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. She has also lived in the US, Italy, and Germany.

She studied art history at Barnard/Columbia in NYC. The first time she went to a museum there, in her early twenties, she discovered an instinctive understanding and love of the basic elements of art, which is what eventually led to her studies. At Barnard, she focused primarily on the paintings of the early Renaissance in her studies and thesis, but also studied modern art, the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, and Chinese art. She has always been drawn to both traditional, classic styles and modern ways of breaking with tradition to create new styles and genres.
