Art is in Barbara Slater’s breath and passion. “I believe that an artist’s final work is a depiction of his or her impressions – emotionally, physically, intellectually and above all, artistically.”
Painting oils with energy and spirit, this artist’s palette of colors is rich, and her brushwork is bold. Barbara continues her studies with different genres, painting still life, florals, landscapes and animals. Animals are her present focus with images of vibrant roosters, horses, cows and other barnyard residents. Painting these rural inhabitants with love and respect, Barbara gives each animal an attitude and personality.
A member of the Oil Painters of America, the California Art Club and the High Desert Art League, Barbara is represented by galleries in Utah and Oregon and has collectors throughout the United States. Barbara had a thirty-five year career in education. She was also a children’s book illustrator and an advertising and graphic design artist.
