About the Artist -Barbara Rios

Coming from an artistic family, visual art has always been a part of my life. Essentially self taught, I have learned by reading, watching others, and constantly experimenting. My willingness to try new techniques, textures, mediums and styles has resulted in a wide variety of art work, but the one constant is bold color. Artist Sterling Edwards’ phrase “creative restlessness” sums up my attitude and reputation well.

The “Whimsey Series” (see tab) is the result of many years of my seeing figures in cloud formations. In this case figures are developed from the randomly sprayed webbing on watercolor paper. Not only has this technique expanded my creativity, it has given me many hours of joy.

I share my knowledge by giving demonstrations to others (members of the Brevard Watercolor Society, senior citizens groups, and public interest shows on local television) also gives me great joy.
