Artist, Barbara McBurnie of Mona Vale, Sydney, brings her own style of excitement and vitality to her art. Her love of the Australian outdoors is reflected in the subjects she paints - beaches, landscapes, native plants, birds, boating, abstracts and more recently oil painting of the Outback.
Barbara began her artistic career as a potter, completing ceramic courses at Brookvale TAFE. The excitement of underglaze colours painted on clay was her motivation to study watercolour painting.
Today, Barbara paints in oils, acrylic and watercolour, using the medium which best suits and reflects the mood of her painting.
Barbara gives thanks to her teachers Val Kemsley, Paul Warner, Frederick Bates, Mollie Flaxman, Alvaro Castagnet, Helen Goldsmith, David Taylor, Ross Patterson, Rex Newell, Ev Hales & Joseph Zbukvic.
