Barbara Bunsey began painting on tin more than 25 years ago, studying with many nationally and internationally known decorative artists over the years. She has also taught the skill for many years.
Several magazines have featured her designs, and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation sells her pieces in its shops. She painted ornaments that appeared on the White House Christmas tree in 2004 and the Library of Congress tree the following year.
In 2008 Bunsey was one of four artists contacted by the Society of Decorative Painters and asked to submit a design to First Lady Laura Bush. The Bushes selected her to paint 1,010 ornaments they gave as gifts to family, friends, and White House staff.
She is a member of the National Society of Tole and Decorative Painters, Decorative Arts Collection, and Tole Painters of the Western Reserve, where she serves as a board member. A resident of Macedonia, Ohio, she is active in her church, Olde Northfield Historic Preservation Association, and Nordonia Hills Garden Club.
