Barbara Applegate is an artist with 30 years experience as a painter and teacher.   Like so many artists she painted part-time for several years while employed in other jobs. In 1998, working diligently to establish relationships with galleries across the US, Barbara was able to realize her dream of spending each day in the studio creating art full time.  While standing in front of the easel each day for 8 - 10 hours was preferable to sitting in a cubicle, Applegate soon found herself hungry for conversation and daily interaction around the office water cooler.  So...in early 2001 she offered her first painting workshop which quickly turned into weekly art classes in her studio.
Now years later, honored by many national awards, Applegate has never looked back.   As the demand for her original paintings increases, she continues to devote a portion of each week to teaching.  Many of her collectors are painters and students at various stages of their artistic journey.  Questions about composition, color, value and more fill her Inbox each day.  A juror of both local and national art exhibitions, Barbara sees the most common mistakes in painting repeated again and again.  Searching for a way to both instruct and entertain art lovers, whether students or connoisseurs, she has created her newest internet website....PAINTING FIXER.COM.
