Hello, my name is Barbara Scharpf and I am an Impasto painter who is obsessed with painting florals bursting with colors and textures. I’ve had customers tell me they look yummy enough to eat. The soft yet textured beauty of flowers have always inspired my creativity and desire to sculpt them onto my wood canvas.
When I began painting at a very young age, my family members always encouraged me. They were busy running a third-generation furniture and decorating business, so I was around color and textures and LOVED IT!
I have evolved over the years from being a classic realistic artist, trained to use oils, into a painter allowing for more soft, contemporary, loose lines with a lot of movement and texture. Some have labeled me the “Happy Painter”. I use pure professional quality acrylic paints using both palette knifes and brushes.
At Creative Womanhood I have a staff that handcrafts our wood canvases to custom sizes and finish them off with handcrafted wood frames. Each painting is distinctive and original created with a special person, place or time in mind.
I feel very blessed that I am able to work full time on my passion for color and creativity. While raising our three children was the best job in the world, I now have to admit this is My favorite thing in the world to do. This IS my true calling.
Take a look around my shop and give me your loving feedback.
