About The Artist

Barbara Wurden expresses her artist talent through three creative disciplines. She is a fine artist, decorative painter and an instructional video producer.

Wurden received a bachelor's degree in fine art from a Minnesota State University in 1985. Soon afterwards, she moved to Southern California to pursue her passion as an artist. She began by developing a decorative painting business. Wurden, owner of Faux Fun, Inc., has collaborated with designers and homeowners leaving behind her creative signature in homes and commercial business throughout Southern California.

Friends and clients loved to watch her work and they frequently inquired about the processes. Consequently, Wurden decided to create an instructional video to show them the steps. The idea blossomed into a ten title DVD series. She does much of the production on her own as she thrives on the artistic challenges of setting up interesting camera angles and delivering clear and inspiring scripts.
