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.
