About Barbara Lawrence

I was born in San Francisco, California and spent my early years walking the hills and beaches,exploring the parks and museums and sailing on San Francisco Bay, all the time absorbing the rich visual information which later became my paintings.

My work is characterized by rich color and sensuous paint application and is in many private collections throughout the U. S. and Europe.

My interests include drawing and painting the human figure but my main emphasis has been on the landscape.  The special color and light of California, in the foothills and fields, on the coast and in the Sierras provide me with a never ending source of material.
