About Barb Capeletti

I have always enjoyed many forms of art since I was a child. Life, however, intervened and I spent 25 years in commercial banking, real estate and finance. Since retiring in 2008, I have pursued my passion for painting, especially watercolors, in my home studio. I love the way the colors blend on the paper and the many different looks, vivid colors and deep values that can be achieved through this medium. My favorite subject is landscapes. I truly enjoy nature and the change in colors that the sunlight creates on mountains, rocks, trees, foliage and flowers.

I am a self-taught artist who enjoys lessons and workshops from many national artists including Joe Miller, Tom Jones, Lian Zhen, and Anne Abgott. Even as I teach private students I continue to increase my own knowledge and skill set through additional classes, resources and my mentors. This year I have expanded my art skills to include oil paintings, impressionist landscapes, under the mentorship of impressionist oil landscape artist George Gallo.

My inspiration is nature and scenery and I especially adore the breathtaking landscapes of the American West - Colorado, Arizona, Sedona, Grand Canyon, as well as lovely northern wooded scenes in places including North Carolina and Central Park in New York. I take many photographs and enlist friends to do the same on their vacations.

I am a member of a few Florida artist guilds and have won several awards, both locally and in online international competitions, for my watercolor paintings. I recently won the People's Choice Award two years in a row in the Coral Springs Festival of the Arts. Many of my paintings are currently displayed as a resident artist in the Spencer Art Gallery in Charleston, SC.

Over the past 15 years I have chaired 20 large fundraisers and worked on many more, and now I co-chair a monthly charity luncheon that features my artwork. Giving back is a large part of my life and I often sell a painting as a donation to a local charity. I am humbled to have received several awards for my work in the community.
