I am Barbara Kidd Calvano, Japanese American, an Eighties Artist meaning I came into my own in the late 70’s early 80’s in New York City. Living and painting in a loft on West Broadway below Canal Street during a prolific and powerful time of the city. Here on this website you’ll see my early autobiographical work and what led to my abstract pieces. I spent a good 25 years working as an actor also from 1995 to 2020. Now in 2021 I am coming back to my painting and writing with a deeper understanding of my purpose and place. I also worked and developed myself as a psychic medium connecting people to their angels, hosting a radio show since 2013 doing live readings on the air. www.bcalvanocoaching.com Life has been very interesting!
