The Artist Says:

I like to look at ordinary subjects and paint them in extraordinary ways!

Collectors Say:

I can't stop smiling - every time I wake up and see that piece, I just smile.


Allow me to take you to a wide open space where you can feel the texture of the outdoors heightening your senses.
Barbara Noonan paints in soft pastel to convey her personal interpretation in a painting.  When not in her new Camano Island studio, she’s off capturing light painting en plein aire.  

Working under Pastel Laureate Bob Gerbracht in San Francisco, Barbara studied portrait and figure painting and continues to attend workshops, critique groups and artist’s residencies.  Influences include Diebenkorn, Thiebaud, Skip Lawrence and Alex Powers. 
You can find Barbara’s work in galleries in Western Washington. She is a Signature Member of the Northwest Pastel Society and the Pastel Society of the West Coast, a member of Women Painters of Washington and has juried art exhibitions in Washington and Oregon.    
Barbara utilizes her background in Human Resources as a consultant and mentor, offering professional art business workshops.   Her artwork is included in the City of Kent Art Collection as well as at Virginia Mason Medical Center.
