Barbara Gottschling

Barb is a native of Cleveland, Ohio who moved here three years ago to open a Bed & Breakfast, the Lone Elk Lodge on The Teton Reserve Golf Course in Victor. Before that she worked in and co-owned a hair salon Bay Village, Ohio for 40 yrs. Hair was her previous canvas. Her style has a bit of folk art in it, a trademark of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Before paintings she recycled junk into home decor and painted furniture for resale. Finding Idaho lacking industrial architectural, she transitioned to painting Rodeo pictures and western beauty. She says “I guess you could only say that I’m self-taught. Reinventing is a good thing and I never lack for ideas. I hope to keep painting and hope folks keep enjoying my works.”
