Barb Kiwak Biography

Maryland oil painter, illustrator and sculptor Barbara Kiwak is known for her landscapes and marine scenes. Collectors are drawn to her strong compositions and her ability to capture nature’s beauty. Also a talented portrait and figurative artist, Barb accepts portrait commissions in oil, charcoal or pencil.

Graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1988 with a BFA in Visual Communications, Barb began her career as an illustrator. Some of her clients included Time Life, Reader’s Digest, The World Wildlife Fund and Random House Publishing. She also received numerous awards throughout her eighteen years in illustration from organizations and publications such as Highlights For Children, The Humane Society of the United States and The Society of Illustrators.

Upon returning from a trip to the western states in 2004, Barb decided to pursue a career in fine art. The following year, Barb received the Lelia Gardin Sawyer award for her bronze sculpture, “Plains Warrior” from the Catherine Lorillard Wolf National Art Club, at Gramercy Park Grande Gallery. She also received the Jack and Evelyn Miller Award for sculpture juried into the “Visual Art Society” show at Meadows Gallery in Texas.
