Barbara Farren

Barbara has been painting professionally since graduating from the Ontario College of Art, Toronto in the early 70ʼs. She loves drawing, watercolour and oil. Her greatest influence was Andrew Wyeth, his landscapes were much like her home, inspiring her paintings everywhere she looked. She has lived in several cities but Montreal suits her spirit. Over the years, Barbara has been recognized and collected beginning with the Canada Council Art Bank. From 2006 to 2010 she attended Art Festivals such as New York Art Expo, Toronto Art Expo, Montreal, Philadelphia among other North American cities. From 2001 Barbara has studied with Masters both here and away. She continues to show in Juried Exhibitions both home and abroad, exhibiting with the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and the Society of Canadian Artists.
