Barbara Tapp graduated in Interior Design from Sydney, Australia and moved to San Francisco in the early 80s with her architect husband Richard. Barbara’s career spans 30 years as an architectural renderer and travel book illustrator.
Drawing and sketching is a key foundation in Barbara’s sensitive watercolors. Her energetic Plein Air urban and seascape paintings are finely drafted perspective driven works. Her focus is telling a story and often a title will come to mind when she selects a scene to paint. Barbara’s paintings are keen observations of life with a fine eye for detail. Barbara continues to paint daily and competes regularly throughout the year in exhibitions and Plein Air events. She is a Signature Member of California Plein Air Painters and Juried Member of Watercolor West.
