Barbara Froula’s paintings appeal to those who love historic architecture, cities and landscape. Combining travel with painting to create cityscapes of Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Prague, Aspen, Vail, and Boulder, she has published books, posters, art prints, and over a million cards.
Recent commissions included paintings for the Central City Opera House, The Brown Palace Hotel, and Accelerated Schools at Fitzroy Place.
Visiting Kenya, Egypt, Tahiti, the Caribbean, Tuscany, the Galapagos Islands, and the National Parks of Arches, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon and Canyonlands has inspired her landscapes in watercolor, oil, and egg tempera. Her garden paintings are inspired by the challenge of capturing luminosity and color.
Barbara attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Auburn University, receiving a degree in Architecture and the AIA medal. She received an Award of Honor from Historic Denver and was commissioned to paint the mural for Colorado History Museum’s exhibit, Denver at 150. Other recent commissions include paintings for the Brown Palace Hotel, Denver Rotary Club and the BolderBOULDER 10K commemorative poster.
