Barbara Marchant, a local Southern Utah artist, discovered her love of art and a
desire to paint at an early age. She studied art in high school and minored in art at Brigham Young University. After a lifetime of raising eight children, seven sons and one daughter she was able to again pursue her love of painting.
While teaching house design at Southern Utah University she was able to
take several art classes and has continued to learn her craft by taking numerous workshops and being mentored by the famous Utah artist Kathryn
Stats. Her love for this beautiful world, and the wonderful colors and light to be
found in Southern Utah continues to inspire her as she captures these scenes in her paintings.
