Impressionistic Watercolor Artist. After a 40-year career in business and finance, Barbara decided to let her left brain rest awhile and pursue a practice she always loved – watercolor painting. There are so many surprises with this medium! Sometimes it has a mind of its own (for better or worse), and Barbara finds that embracing this quality leads to more satisfying results. Barbara has studied with numerous local and nationally known artists and her watercolor paintings have been displayed at galleries throughout Michigan.
