Artist Bio: 

Barbara Cadario is an award-winning Contemporary Impressionist painter of figures, water and anything else that captures the concept or emotion she wants to express. She is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Santa Barbara Art Association and has a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Colours and light inspire her.

“I simply want to paint beautiful paintings that transport someone who looks at them to a desirable or tranquil place; sometimes a place of the imagination. It is all about the wonder of life.”
