Barbara holds a B.F.A. in Illustration from Syracuse University and a Diploma of Fine Art from Studio Incamminati. After graduating from college in 1999, she immediately moved to NYC. She met success in shows at Figureworks Gallery and Get Real Art, but felt drawn to study classical painting in Florence, Italy. She lived there for one year studying drawing under Mario Pachioli. Then in 2004, she moved to Philadelphia on a full scholarship to study with Nelson Shanks at Studio Incamminati. It was here that she developed her portrait painting and color theory skills. She left the atelier in 2006 to work on a series of large thematic paintings and landscape painting. After traveling and painting extensively, Barbara returned to Incamminati to finish the Professional Program and in 2015 served as a fellow at the school for two years while teaching drawing to students from Project Home. She currently lives in East Falls and teaches drawing and painting at Fleisher Art Memorial, Wayne Art Center, Abington Art Canter, Studio Incamminati, Repenning Fine Arts, and Journey’s Way.
