Barbara Ursel is an Ottawa artist who paints the wonders of ordinary life – the streetscapes and people she sees all around her. She paints the light, and the shadows it casts, in these ordinary scenes to show the wonders that she sees there. Barbara hopes that her paintings let you see and explore these “ordinary wonders” too.
