I'm Loretta Barra, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area

and now reside in beautiful Eagle, Idaho.

I began painting in 2002 at Rancho La Puerta in Mexico. I have been taking workshops and classes from world renowned artists. I love painting with watercolor and acrylic paints. My style tends to lean toward whimsical and colorful paintings. As you will notice I enjoy painting delicious desserts.  I actually illustrated Joanne Pence's "Cook's Dessert Cookbook"! Purchase it on Amazon today!

Besides painting I am enjoying teaching "Painting Parties" 

and I am available for private children's painting parties.

 

A popular item I sell are  "Painting Kits" which include the canvas, a brush, paints, template and step by step instructions.

Do you have a pet you would like a painting of ?

Or maybe a painting of your house ?
