Barbara Lawrence studied at California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland and the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Deciding early on to make her living with art, Lawrence worked in design, production graphics and computer illustration. Twenty years ago she made the courageous decision to follow the momentum of what she sees as the most creative period of her life and start painting full time.
Barbara teaches classes and workshops in the United States and Europe. Her work can be seen in numerous shows and galleries in and around California.
