Barbara traces her love of art to a class in art history while pursuing her nursing education. Art became a life-long passion. Her greatest influence has been the impressionistic movement. Learning the history of art evolved into seeking training as an artist participating in ongoing classes and multiple workshops. She discovered a joy in drawing with pencil that evolved into a passion for Pastels and Acrylics. This gave her an opportunity to develop her unique style emphasizing both color and light. She continues to explore all types of media and now is pursing the study of watercolors.
Barbara exhibits her work extensively around the greater Orlando area. She can be found working in her studio at 807 Virginia Dr. Orlando where her work is also on display.
