About The Artists:

Barbara J. Kraemer
Barbara is an award-winning artist, with her work held in private and corporate collections and appearing in several publications. She is a member of Pine Shores Art Association, The New Jersey Watercolor Society, The Brevard Watercolor Society, and The Florida Watercolor Society, but she is not limited to watercolor. She works in every two-dimensional medium and enjoys the challenge of all subjects, from seascapes and landscapes to portraits. She believes every view can be a compelling painting.

In addition to creating her own artwork, she teaches art in New Jersey and Florida, and in Spring 2024, she was asked to demonstrate painting techniques at Brevard County Florida’s major annual SPLASH Watercolor Art Show. She makes time to also continue her own art studies under the direction of renowned painters. Her work is regularly seen in coastal exhibitions, and she is an exhibiting member of Eau Gallery in Melbourne, Florida.

Barbara holds a BA in Mass Communications and Public Relations, and during a 40-year career working in advertising for major New York agencies, she wrote and designed corporate publications. She also served as creative project manager for interior design and renovation projects, including a historic mansion in Hopewell, NJ.

In 2021, she was awarded 2nd place in the LBI Foundation’s “Plein Air Plus” national juried competition. She is past president of the Paducah Art Guild and Gallery in Kentucky, and she has been on the board of directors of Pine Shores Art Association in New Jersey for several years, currently serving as Director of their two galleries. She’s also co-curator of the Beach Haven Borough Hall Gallery, and she authored “Guide to the Jersey Shore”, a 2021 publication illustrated by Pine Shores Art Association.
