Babette Herschberger was born in Indiana. She currently lives and works in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Intrigued with how structures in the built environment contrast with the natural world, Babette Hershberger works intuitively to create minimal, abstract compositions which emphasize color, form and surface. Considering her collage process as a way of drawing within painting, Hershberger’s works often incorporate informal and banal materials, such as found cardboard and product packaging, which she transforms through boldly colored planes and forms generating works that suggest objects, structures and landscapes. Hershberger has exhibited widely across the US and was an artist in residence at ArtCenter South Florida/Oolite Arts in Miami. Her work was published in New American Paintings, edition #112, and is in the collection of Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art + Design as well as a number of corporate collections. Hershberger completed her AS in graphic design with honors at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
