Barbara Luel (@barbaraluel) is an architect and artist committed to sharing her love of making art with as many people as possible. After setting aside her art practice to focus on her career, she returned to it, rediscovering her passion for seeing the world through art. Barbara’s lively watercolors have a fresh spaciousness that speaks to her joyful love of architecture and urban sketching.⁠

Barbara and I played with color and form and talked about how freeing it can be to create. In her own words, “Everybody is creative, is an artist and can draw and paint! And the more you do it, the better it feels, and the better your art will look.”

The ballpoint pen Barbara uses is a Mark’s Tokyo Edge.
