Barbara Krupp

b 1942

Barbara Photo

A superb colorist, Barbara Krupp creates exhilarating and emotionally rich paintings. She has exhibited her work in art shows, museums and galleries spanning a thirty-four year award winning career.

“As an artist I endeavor to create and share beauty, whether a place in our minds, a memory from our past, or an experience not yet realized.”
“Beginning my paintings with a simple form, I tap into my feelings of the beauty and joy experienced from a place visited. After successfully expressing and conveying these emotions on canvas, the painting is complete.”


Vero Beach 32963 News- University of Tampa Big Artist on Campus
