Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Barbara Stanton is a native Californian and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area all her life. Specializing in miniature oil paintings and portraits (miniature and full size) her charming landscapes, still life’s and portraits are done in a very traditional, realist style. Her superb use of color and light make each piece glow. The precisely detailed compositions, some no larger than a postage stamp, call out to the viewer to step nearer and explore them more closely, to feel the moment.

Barbara Stanton’s work has found it’s way into collections around the world. Miniature collectors are her biggest fans because she paints in the popular dollhouse scale 1/12 (one inch equals a foot) and they fit just right in their fine miniature collections.

Painting for more than thirty five years now, Barbara Stanton has mastered her technique and continues to seek new challenges. She is an IGMA Fellow (International Guild of Miniature Artisans). She is also an art instructor and is available for demonstrations and workshops. She has taught twice at the annual IGMA Guild School in Castine, Maine (2001 & 2003). Barbara is very active in her local art community. She runs a Figure Drawing workshop and teaches art classes every Fri. at Livermore’s Bothwell Art Center. Member of MAA, IGMA, MASF, MPSGS, and Hilliard Society.
