Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Myrna was already demonstrating an unusual ability and interest in art as early as five years old. Her passion for color, for portraiture and figurative work has been ongoing themes since childhood. She studied with world-renowned portrait artist Frank Szaz as a teenager and learned to paint in oils in the Old Master’s technique.
She started her own company, Myrna Wacknov, Designs, Inc. in 1982 and has worked in many art media. In 2000 she started her love affair with watercolor.
Exhibiting with the California Watercolor Association Blackhawk Gallery, Myrna won numerous first and second place awards. She has been included in the California Watercolor Association national show, the Watercolor Association of Houston national show, Louisiana Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain Watercolor Society (where she won the Louise Cadillac award), Watercolor West, and the National Watercolor Society. She won first place for Watercolor in the Society of Western Artists annual show.

Joyce Barron Leopardo
Michigan born and educated Joyce Barron Leopardo has lived in San Francisco for the past 32 years. Joyce has worked in the business world, while still following her passion for art. Barron’s work is represented in the collection of Stanford and Mills-Peninsula Hospitals plus many private collections both in the United States and Europe and India. Barron also donates her time to both private and civic organizations for the arts. She has been Juror & Tutor and has received many awards. Primarily using water media, Barron is an artist who is interested in developing her personal style with technique and unique effects and wishes to convey her inner feelings and spirit on paper and canvas.
Joyce provides students with guidance and support in classroom surroundings. Her experience tells her that those seeking more knowledge to master their individual techniques will benefit from her loving spirit, along with an extensive background of artistic style, color and commitment.
Barron fuses this sensual fluid water media with a wonderful awareness that comes from seeing, feeling and touching something and then sharing this with others. Her goal is to share with you a moment in time, space, color, the mood of a particular moment, and the ultimate experience of being. She intends to captivate your soul!
I’m originally from a village called Livingston Manor in the Catskill Mountains of New York State and have a degree in Psychology and Philosophy from New Paltz State University.
I believe I have been true to a life of creative exploration and learning for over 45 years. My personal education in the Liberal Arts has broadened my study of the Creative Arts and Science. The key for me is curiosity and a hands-on approach working with the tools of a variety of traditional and contemporary digital media. My wife and I raised our family locally, and I continue to pursue my creative interests.
