Beginning in watercolor, Barbieri devoured instructional books and turned to local artists and knowledgeable friends for advice, critique, and insight.

Since 1995, Barbieri's paintings have been purchased by individuals, collectors, museums and historic hotels. Among his commissioned works are are a series of Western paintings and a 120' mural, depicting a cattle drive, for the historic Driskill Hotel in Austin. He recently completed an 8'x12' canvas of an 1850s riverboat scene for an historic Houston hotel, currently undergoing restoration.

In 1998 Barbieri began design work and glass painting at Stanton Glass Studio, whose work is seen all over the Southwest. The following year he ventured into oil painting, his preferred medium.

Barbieri recently studied under California artist Ron Riddick, in his Painting with a Passion workshop. He was the only artist from that workshop to receive a full scholarship for research and development to the 2001 Prix de West Invitational Exhibition.

In 2001 and 2002, he was invited to show his work at the Annual Mountain Oyster Club Show in Tucson, Az. In 2002 and 2003, his paintings were shown at the Phippen Museum Show in Prescott, Az.

Barbieri enjoys painting portraits, landscapes of the Southwest, and still lives, but much of his inspiration is taken from the agrarian community where he lives with his wife and five children. He is daily surrounded by scenes such as draft horse teams planting or cultivating corn, a family working their garden, or a group of men - young and old - rounding up and branding calves. He hopes to communicate through his work the vibrancy of the natural world and the simplicity and beauty of the life and relationships he enjoys in rural Texas.
