About Barbara

I have been painting for over forty years since my professional trying at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, followed by a degree program at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I owned a high end design firm for forty years that created Fine Art publications for artists, galleries and museums.

I am now retired and painting full time with a studio in Manayunk, PA. I also have great Photoshop skills from color correcting my publication work.

I am interested in teaching in the realist tradition of my work. I have won numerous awards throughout my career. I have exhibited in many professional venues and my work exits in corporate and museum collections. I would like to pass on this wealth of knowledge to students of any age.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have owned my own business for over forty years and have used Photoshop for over twenty five years in my work. I love this program and use it for my fine art as well.

Macintosh

I got my first Mac in the late '80s at which time I installed all my own systems and software. I have run a professional design business on Macs for over forty years. I love Macs and am comfortable with this system.

Painting

I have a very impressive resume which lists my professional gallery exhibitions, commissions and collections containing my work.

I have been professionally trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where I received academic training as well as a BFA degree in painting from the University of the arts.

I recently completed a commission for Amber Road corporation that now hangs in their Shanghai, China office.
