Watercolour Artist, also using Oil and Acrylic
Barbara also enjoys Textile Art specialising in Silk on Wool Felted Scarves and 2 ply lace knitted Scarves and Shawls
After a career of 39 years in Office Administration with a year's diversion as a Patisserie proprietor, Barbara moved to the Sunshine Coast with her husband in 1998. In 2008 she undertook a watercolour painting course with Diane Somers Cook and relished the experience of attempting to paint and seeing improvement as she practiced the techniques delivered in the weekly workshops.
Since then she has attended Watercolour workshops by Jenny MacNaughton, Barry McCann and Ross Paterson as well as Oil and Acrylic workshops with Todd Whisson, Michael Winters, Aileen Shaw, Victoria Fitzpatrick and Kasey Sealy to name a few.
As a member of the Blackall Range Visual Artists, Barbara has been enjoying the chance to share ideas and take part in other workshops within the group.
