Barbara Enochian

Barbara Enochian

Barbara Enochian’s interest in art began in childhood and was encouraged by parents and teachers. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from UC Berkeley. Barbara was impressed with the Abstract Expressionist and Figurative art movements that were popular at that time. In the early 1990’s she returned to art, studying at Shasta College in Redding, CA for eight years. Since then Barbara has been teaching art, has had many solo and group shows, and has sold her work all over the U.S.  Barbara is interested in depicting reality with an emphasis on her personal interpretation of nature. She aims at defining the essence of a landscape whether it is the glow of a pink dawn, the wild wind of a storm approaching, or the craggy rocks on the Oregon coast juxtaposed against brilliant pink flowers. Barbara often uses collage and oil pastels in her acrylic paintings to add texture and pattern and encourages the viewer to look closely and appreciate the surface detail.”
