Barbara Cadario

Class of 2014, Major Visual Arts

Vancouver-based artist Barbara Cadario creates art that expresses tranquillity, beauty and the strength of the human spirit.


Barbara’s paintings are poetic and polished. She started painting in oil paint at the age of nine and she always wanted to be an artist. Following her graduation from Emily Carr University of Art & Design with a BFA in 2014, her first solo show in 2015 nearly sold out. Her paintings express the themes of freedom and beauty, and every painting contains something alive: a figure, a plant or an animal. She wants her images to take you for a sensory experience or a leap of the imagination. An award-winning artist, her paintings are in collections in Canada, England and the USA.
