    Hands on experience with an accomplished teacher who excels in color matching, perspective, and balance. I have learned a lot from Barbara Davies!

  • Debra Curtice

    The best thing about art on the lane is Barbra. She’s patient, knowledgeable and kind. I have learned so much from her and appreciate her willingness to help and inspire when I want to give up!

    Barbara's precision. Her excellent work & her ability to show students just how to paint as perfect as she does. She's the best!
