This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted by the artist:

Following training at Art Center in 1951, Barbara (Briggs) Bradley  began her illustration career at Charles E. Cooper Studios in New York.  In 1955, she returned to the San Francisco Bay Area to free lance.  Specializing in expressive figures, she became known for her depiction of children, raising three of her own.  Her illustrations for clients such as Bank of America, Borden's, Dole, and C&H Sugar have brought her many national awards.

In 1958, she began teaching at the Academy of Art University, becoming Director of Illustration, a position she held for twenty-five years until her retirement. She continues teaching special Courses at the Academy and has taught drawing workshops in the US for Disney and Pixar, and in the UK. 

She is the author and illustrator of Drawing People: How to Portray the clothed figure.  Some of her illustrations are in the collections of her corporate clients, the United States Airforce, and the Society of Illustrators Museum of American Illustration.  In 2007, the Society of Illustrators named her the Distinguished Educator in the Arts.
