The art of Barbara Shapokas.

I began observing the world while sitting at my father’s desk at the age of three. My first response was to attempt to draw a fence “going away”, a child’s way of 
observing perspective. As a young artist, it was, at first, simple pencil drawings which led to more complex renderings as an art student, then to spontaneous abstracts as a maturing artist, and today, the adventure of recording nature’s disappearing landscapes with pastels or oils.
