About BarbaraTyler Ahlfield:
Barbara started drawing at the age of two and was soon decorating her bedroom walls with crayon fashion drawings.

Memorial Art Gallery. Following colleges, she united her loves of art and fashion into a career spanning thirty years as one of the leading, award-winning retail fashion illustrators in the country.    

The archive of her illustrations is one of the few existing collections of American fashion illustration over the last quarter century and offers a retrospective of the American woman's changing sense of style as well as changing illustrative styles. On any given day her full page illustrations appeared in many of the major newspapers in the country including the New York Times, Chicago Sun Times, Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, etc., etc. showcasing top American designers for the major U.S. department stores such as Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom, Dillards, John Wanamaker and many more.
