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 History of Art from UC Berkeley. Barbara was impressed with the Abstract Expressionist and Figurative art movements that were popular at that time. After a family tragedy in the early 1990’s she returned to art, studying at Shasta College in Redding, CA for eight years. Since then she has been teaching art, has had many solo and group shows, and has sold her work all over the U.S.  Barbara paints daily in her studio. Her focus is to find creative ways to express subjects that are ordinary and familiar. She is especially interested in working with a variety of art materials in her mixed media pieces. She combines acrylic paint, oil pastels, collaged papers, and pencil to create a multi-layered surface and unique texture. Her global travel has provided inspiration for many of the figure paintings on display
