Barbara Wurden expresses her artistic talent through three
creative disciplines. She is a fine artist, decorative painter and an
instructional video producer.
Wurden received a bachelor’s degree in fine art from a Minnesota State University
in 1985. Soon afterwards, she moved to Southern California
to pursue her passion as an artist. She began by developing a decorative
painting business. Wurden, owner of Faux Fun, Inc., has collaborated with designers
and homeowners leaving behind her creative signature in homes and commercial
business throughout Southern California.
Friends and clients loved to watch her
work and they frequently inquired about the processes. Consequently, Wurden
decided to create an instructional video to show them the steps. The idea
blossomed into a ten title DVD series. She does much of the production on her
own as she thrives on the artistic challenges of setting up interesting camera
angles and delivering clear and inspiring scripts.
Ultimately, Wurden expresses herself best
through her fine art. It is on canvas where she is able to use her creative
energies in a more mystical manner and paint images beyond decoration. She
paints abstractly coupled with realism. Her paintings reflect vibrant colors
and lively gestured brush stokes interconnected with the use of quiet and the
sensual blending of colors.
