Artist BiographyA native of California, Barbie Smith is an oil painter whose love of color and beauty is reflected in her work. She finds inspiration in the endless wonder of God's creation and tries to reflect that beauty in her paintings. She looks for any subject with a strong design element including patterns of light and shadow or bold contrast of color or value. Her work is often described as that which evokes a sense of peacefulness and tranquility for the viewer.For Barbie, oil painting is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Her art has been a progression which began in childhood with endless hours of drawing, leading to a pursuit of more formal training in her college years. Her passion for oil painting has developed through many opportunities to study in workshops and classes with both regional and nationally known artists including Randy Blasquez, Daniel Mundy, Don Hatfield, Mike Bagdonas, Jake Gaedke and Terry Miura. A member of the Folsom Arts Association and the California Art Club, Barbie's work has received awards and recognition in juried art exhibits and can be found in private collections throughout the United States. She is represented by the Gold Country Artist Gallery in Placerville, CA.Contact Barbie through her website at www.barbismithstudio.com or by email at Stnbsmith@aol.com.
