Pastel                Landscape Artist

It seems that Barbara Stone has been painting nearly all her life. As an undergraduate at UMass, Barb wanted to become an art teacher yet ended up teaching phys ed and health, a profession she still maintains today in the Barnstable School System at the elementary level. Yet her love of art, and of painting, is stronger than ever. 

From its beginnings in 1995 Barbara was active in the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, and ultimately served as the non-profit's President for a few years. She now holds the coveted signature status in the society as a juried member. Pastel is Barbara's medium of choice. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. Barb is now exploring working in oil paints, and is enjoying this "sister" medium to pastel.

A representational painter who pushes color and the literal scene to depict the emotion she feels while painting the New England landscape, Barb captures the marshes and bogs of Cape Cod with a softness of edges and drama. Her signature mark making sets her work apart. It's no wonder she has been recognized with many awards for her exceptional pastel work.
