Barbara graduated in Interior Design from Sydney, Australia and moved to San Francisco in the 80’s with her architect husband Richard. Her career spans 36 years as an architectural illustrator. Drawing and sketching is a key foundation in Barbara’s watercolors. Her gently painted Plein Air urban and seascape paintings are finely drafted perspective driven works. Her focus is to look for the unexpected telling an authentic story and often a title will come to mind when she selects a scene. Barbara continues to paint daily, exhibit and compete in Plein Air Events throughout the year.
