Barbara J. Kraemer
Barbara has always loved the arts of all kinds. A native New Yorker, during high school days she won numerous awards throughout the New York Citywide school competitions for paintings and woodcut prints. During her career in corporate America she designed and developed marketing materials and brochures for Fortune 500 companies, served as creative coordinator for interior decorating, renovation, & design projects, and produced layout, design, and content for many newsletters, several she continues to write today. She also designs and creates stage props and backgrounds for The Wrinkle Revue community theatre group in Ocean County New Jersey.
Barbara travels the world photographing the unique and different landscapes, architecture, and events for later paintings. When both feet are on the ground, she also paints local scenes including seascapes and florals from her backyard garden – her ‘outdoor canvas’ as she refers to it.
Barbara is a lifelong student and when it comes to painting, her teachers include professional and award winning artists from New York City to Brevard County, Florida. Her work has appeared in Echo’s Magazine, Long Beach Island, NJ, as well as Hometown News, Satellite Beach, FL. Barbara shares her love of painting by offering private paint-along parties for groups of all ages and sizes, as well as coordinating art exhibits for herself and fellow artists. She loves introducing and debuting new works of new artists.
Barbara’s 2020 schedule is packed! From May through September, Barbara’s works will be on exhibit in multiple locations including several restaurants, across the Ocean County, NJ Library System, at Art Association galleries and shows.
Barbara accepts commission work and enjoys painting pet portraits, family homes, cars, boats ~ whatever people hold near and dear.
