Barbara Nuss

 “I consider my paintings to be a reflection of my artistry and my view of the world.
It humbles me to know when my art is appreciated.”

 It is the simple things - an old fenceline, a window box or even a familar pattern of shadows - that are often the most significant. With an eye for the things we remember, and savor, Barbara Nuss gives homage to the details of every day life. In still life or landscape, Nuss crafts her forms, creating a warm atmosphere that invites the viewer to narrate the scene with their own memories. 

 Barbara began her artistic career with a BFA from Syracuse University followed by study at the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore. She worked as an illustrator and graphic designer for a time, which she credits as valuable experience. She is a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club in New York, National Oil & Acrylic Painter’s Society (signature member), Oil Painters of America, International Guild of Realism, Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association, American Women Artists, Women Artists of the West, the Baltimore Watercolor Society and she is Past President of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters.
