Barbara Stover

Barbara always enjoyed painting and drawing as a child and assisted painting scenery for her high school plays. After attending college, working and immigrating to Canada in 1962 she did not resume painting until 1971 when she moved to Victoria. Barbara joined an oil painting group as well as the newly formed Juan de Fuca Guild that organized several art exhibitions. After moving to West Vancouver in 1978 she was too busy raising 4 children, working at several jobs and being both a Guide and Beaver leader to find time for art. Luckily by the mid 90s she was able to resume painting and upon moving to Sechelt in 2002 painted several backdrops for Beaver camps, produced several paintings for silent auctions, designed a picture for the Downtown Business Association shopping bag and helped with scenery for the Gibson United Church theatre group. Upon returning to Squamish in 2005 she painted various projects at the West Coast Railway Park including murals for the Patricia Anne and Bent Spike model railways. She also painted backdrops for a model railway in Winnipeg and another in Ancaster. More recently she has helped paint scenery for Between Shifts theatre and is looking forward to painting once again with the Seniors Paint and Sketch group.
