Barbara (bj) Yost

BJ Yost’s works in pastels, handmade prints, and little books reflect her cultural shifts from Southern hospitable, through Midwestern nice, and Chicagoland fierce to Western independent.

BJ has studied with master pastelists, master printmakers, and internationally acclaimed makers of handmade books. Lists of her teachers and the galleries and other venues that have exhibited her work can be found on her website at

In addition to making her own art, BJ and her partner D. Leighton Yost organize, hang and catalog art for the two-story atrium gallery at 1101West Mineral Ave., Littleton, Colorado.

BJ lives and works in Denver.
