Bobbi Baldwin has been creating fine art Oil, Graphite, & Pastel Portraits on commission since 1982. She has painted more than several hundred paintings, prolific in all subjects and the ability of capturing the moment and likeness. Her work has been strongly influenced by many of the great European, Russian, and French artists. As a respected Fine Artist, she was selected to visit Russia in 1996 as part of the "First delegation of American Artists to be invited to Russia". Bobbi worked side by side with contemporary Russian artists and studied the work of the great 20th century Classical Realism Russian Masters. Teaching since 1985 in art stores, schools, workshops: she has taught hundreds of students (12 & up) during her career, including children, through Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission’s outreach program.
