Barbara is a fine artist and illustrator. She received her formal art training at the Ontario College of Art & Design – now OCAD University – where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Barbara has exhibited work in Toronto and taught Art History at the Royal Ontario Museum. She is inspired by nature, 20th century Italian design and of course, Disney.

The Disney Sophisticate began as a way to share her love of all things Disney. It has since grown to showcase her art and personal style. Barbara lives in Toronto, Canada where she shares a home with her husband Michael, their son Maxwell and their three cats. She’s happiest driving past the gates to Walt Disney World.
