Barbara received her BFA from St. John’s University New York and has been fortunate to have worked in the field of art in many capacities ever since. For two decades she worked as art director and production manager in the magazine publishing industry. In 2005 she took that experience and founded Remarque Paperworks, LLC, a company dedicated to personal and corporate graphic design services.
Barbara is a member of the Illinois National Watercolor Society, Urban Sketchers, Urban Sketchers Midwest and Urban Sketchers Chicago. She’s won many awards for her watercolors and her work hangs in collections throughout the US and Canada. In the summer of 2012 she served as the guest blogger “Urban Sketcher Meets Urban Farmer” for GoodFoodFestivals.com.
She teaches private sketching and journaling classes that use watercolor and sketching to record everyday life.
During our Chicago Sketch Seminar Barbara will be teaching one workshop together with Wes Douglas:
