Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, painter David Barbere’s interest in art developed at an early age. He studied drawing and painting under a private tutor, Leonard Borman of Joshua Tree, California. He has also studied under Bismarck-area artists Rosemary Landsberger, Vern Skaug, Frank Webb, and Mike Capser. Most recently, he studied with master painter Carl Brenders in Tacoma, Washington.
Barbere is largely a self-taught artist who strives through various workshops and studies to improve his knowledge and skills.
He accepts commissioned work and paints in his rural Apple Creek Art Studio. His award-winning paintings have been featured in many juried shows.
During the months of January, February, and March 2003, he was the featured artist in the offices of North Dakota Governor John Hoeven and First Lady Mikey Hoeven.
