| Barbara Burris was born in Fillmore, Utah, and after living and working in California, has returned to Utah, currently living in Kanosh, Utah. She has been painting for almost 30 years. She has studied under several award winning and published artists; Rick Leandro, Hal Rutter, Gerogia Herrick, Louise Epperson, and Buck Paulson, however, she is primarily self-taught. Her main inspiration was her Grandfather, Southern Utah artist Bert Cluff.
Her work appears in many public and private collections including Delicato Winery in French Camp, California and has won numerous awards.
Her art was chosen to hang in the California State Capitol for a year. She specializes in realistic oils, watercolor and reproductions of the Old Masters. Under increasing demand, she has now ventured into a very limited print distribution of her original work.
Barbara has chosen to share her love of the arts through teaching classes and workshops. She has been teaching art for over 15 years.
She has organized annual art shows for the 24th of July in Kanosh and the weekend after labor day for Millard County artists
“My art reflects an appreciation of color and light. Both are the inspiration and the challenge of painting. One of the wonderful aspects of art is its lack of limitations. This allows, and even encourages me to utilize a wide variety of subject matter and to find unique ways of presenting these artistically. I paint whatever feels interesting and exciting to me.”
People’s Choice Award, Best of Show, Gold Rush City Award, First, Second and Third in various art shows. Invited to show at the “Invitation Only” exhibit at Delicato Winery, and featured artist in Modesto, California Annual Parade of Homes.
