This biography from the Archives of AskART:
As a child in Colorado, Barbara Hermsen lived in the country southwest of Denver. Hers was the open space of lakes and foothills; racing sailboats, bareback riding, Saturdays on the ski train to the mountains.

After boarding school in Massachusetts in the mid-1960s, art schools, Syracuse University, and Pratt Institute, Hermsen pursued a career in advertising, which took her to New York to Rhode Island, to California and Washington State. She designed architectural signing, trade exhibits, packaging, print and corporate identity.

Always a painter, she was taught by Seattle teachers and friends Deanne Lemley, Ron Lucas and William F. Reese. Married for the past twenty years to Tom Hermsen, the grief of his death in 2000 has brought change for every member of the family.

Barbara now travels with her two Setters, and a silver bullet ''61 Airstream BAMBI in tow. From the adobe cottage in Carmel to the family home on Puget Sound, the Pacific whispers its restless call....paint me...
