Barbara Shapiro is Printmaker and an Artist
Barbara was born in New York, moved to Florida, then to Washington, D.C. for graduate school and then back to New York to work. She had a series of wonderful jobs there: Media Director of an Advertising Agency, Director of Public Relations for a Museum and then on to the worlds of Fashion and Beauty for the next 20+ years.
She was able to draw from her visual vocabulary to develop ways of making prints that are rich and layered and experimental. They are abstract and strong and inviting.
For Barbara Printmaking is synonymous with freedom. It is open for pushing boundaries. She enjoys the element of chance and is willing to gamble. The results are sources of great pleasure and satisfaction.
