Born in 1946
Barbara Culp's colorful designs lend themselves to a variety of decorative settings. A former jewelry designer, Culp decided to try her hand in the home furnishings market with a line of copper enamel dishes and accessories. She discovered she most enjoyed painting the dishes, and began to paint furniture and other household objects, creating functional art.
Her humorous furniture designs soon caught the attention of
retailers in the United States, Canada and Europe. Today, almost ten years later, Culp is focusing more on her canvas paintings since it allows her to explore a variety of creative visions. Culp is very attuned to color trends and style directions. Her subject matter varies from primary-colored fruit for the kitchen to pastel fashion accessories for a young girl's room. Painting with a thick brush stroke and sometimes adding playful words which add a whimsical element to the pieces, Culp brings a joyous feeling to everyday objects.
Since her entry into the art world, Culp has exhibited her work at the DeYoung Museum, San Francisco, Ansel Adams Gallery at Yosemite National Park, California, and other venues across the United States.
