Barbara Kolo was born and educated in New York. After she developed an appreciation for art from an early age, her interest in drawing and painting led her to attend the High School of Art and Design, followed by the School of Visual Arts. She received her BFA from SVA in 1981. During the 1980's, Barbara built a career as an award-winning art director in creative advertising for films and television. It was this career that brought her to Los Angeles in 1989.

During the early '90's, she followed the urge to develop her own personal artistic voice and began to create her own works. Her drawings were soon being included in local and national group shows.

Barbara moved with her husband to Paris, France in 2000, for a two-year stay. She rented an art studio by La Bastille, and participated in "Genie de la Bastille" an event similar to the Venice Art Walk in California. Her paintings were part of several group exhibitions including one at the Palais des Art in Marseilles. The couple returned to Santa Monica in 2003 after a short stay on the East coast.

Barbara Kolo’s paintings consist of a collection of dots and lines, carefully placed with acrylic paint and graphite on paper or canvas.

The artwork is framed in a white wood frame. The framed size is 34x26". It is wired and ready to hang. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.
