Ursula Barton

Ursula Barton: I proudly represent my Oregon roots here in Portland. After graduating in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration from Pacific Northwest College of Art, I launched my postcard and greeting card collection printed from paintings that were shown in my Rainy City solo show in February 2011. From there I began my mural career, painting large walls and odd spaces for private homes and local businesses all over Portland, focusing on landscapes and cityscapes. You can see some of my public work at The Daily Cafe in the Pearl, Racion downtown, The Rose Lounge in Old Town, and my newest mural of the St. Johns Bridge in downtown St Johns in winter 2015.When I am not painting I am planning my next trip. In 2008, I was fortunate to work with fine art photographer Katharine T. Jacobs on a portrait project that took us on a road trip to all 50 states. This amazing experience made it clear to me that I will always make time in my life to travel, and find my inspiration within my environment.
