Barbara Ivy

San Rafael, CA

Art is my "never never land". A place to go to just be with the sound of my brush on the canvas. Ahhhhh

I have been painting for 25 - 30 years now. I have been privileged to paint and study with the most wonderful master artists: E. John Robinson (my mentor and friend), Mary Carol, William Blackman, Buck Paulson, Rah, Ruth Patroka, and others. My favored medium is oil on canvas, but I also dabble in acrylics and mixed media. The ocean and landscapes are my favorite subjects, but I have been known to paint whatever beauty catches my eye at that moment in time.
