About the Instructor

Barbara grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, and lived in Naples, Florida, before moving to Dallas. She has three children and seven grandchildren. She began studying oil painting in 2011 and, after many years in radio advertising, decided in 2015 to pursue art full-time. She has always felt destined to become a portrait artist.

In addition to pet portraits, Barbara has done figurative painting as well as landscapes. She has worked in both watercolor and oil but prefers oil for realistic painting.
