Barbara Fudurich

In her variety of watercolor subjects, Barbara displays a range of perspectives that highlight the beauty of landscapes and the intimacy of outdoor still life and simple daily activities that have been described as “peaceful“. Her greatest pleasure is painting on location, which has taken her to venues around her home area of Southern California, the Southwest, Hawaii, Canada, Europe, and South America.

I am inspired not only by the beauty of nature, but also by man-made creativity, color, and form, and I especially love to combine them.” The late Roger Armstrong described her work as having “an emotional quality that transcends the actual medium.

An award-winning artist, Barbara’s work has been juried into shows such as Art Splash, Echoes and Visions, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Women Artists of the West at The Ronald Reagan Library, Tucson Desert Museum, Arts for the Parks, and the Sedona Arts Center Show. She is a member of the Niguel Art Association, San Diego Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, and is a juried member of Women Artists of the West. Barbara has developed her art through personal study and with working professionals such as Timothy Clark, Roger Armstrong, Tony VanHasselt, and Alvaro Castagnet.

Walter Foster has published Barbara in two co-authored watercolor instruction books, as well as her own solo publication. Her work presently hangs at The Watercolor Gallery in Laguna Beach, and in private collections in Canada, Europe and across the United States. Having lived in Dana Point since 1987, she is continually inspired by the beauty around our beach and mission communities.
