Welcome to my website. I hope you will enjoy my work as much as I do creating it. The following is a brief art biography – Barbara Moak
Barbara has always loved art. As a young girl Barbara would visit a secluded site in the woods neighboring her upstate New York home to observe and sketch birds in their natural habitat.
She attended the State University of New York at New Paltz and the University of New York at Albany. At New Paltz, Barbara studied under George Wexler and Sheldon Schoenberg whom she credits with teaching her the fundamentals of drawing (Prof Schoenberg told his students if they couldn’t learn to “see” they would never be artists.) She credits this with providing her the foundation for her paintings.
While attending the University of New York at Albany she began her career as a graphic artist at GE Research and Development and then went on to teach drawing and painting in New York school systems for 10 years before moving to Florida.
On arriving in Tampa, FL, she worked as editor and graphic artist for Associated General Contractors (AGC) Publications. Her duties included graphic production in addition to editing trade publications and layout design. To expand her graphic arts background Barbara joined Xerox Business Services as operations manager producing print media for their clients.
But her first love was always painting. An artist with a wide range of still life and land and seascapes in acrylic she has now re-discovered oil and has tested her abilities with a wide range of subject matter. Currently her favorites are landscapes and seascapes. Her work has been exhibited at restaurant openings as well as private galleries and interior design boutiques.
She has sold commissioned works in New York and Florida and has exhibited her works at Tada Gallery in Tampa.
