Serena Barton


About the Author

Visual art was Serena Barton’s first love as a child. She moved on to acting in local plays and later became a licensed professional counselor. Serena rediscovered her desire to make art following her first trip to Italy. She taught herself to paint and create mixed-media work in midlife, proving it’s never too late to create!

Serena holds creativity and art workshops, and groups and individual art coaching at her studio and at national art retreats. She exhibits and sells her work through galleries and shops, as well as online. Serena has published Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop (North Light, 2013) and A Joyful Frenzy, a book of her artwork with text on the stories and processes behind the work. Her magazine articles have appeared in issues of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and Studios magazines and in Cloth Paper Scissors e-Books.

Serena’s great joy is to provide an atmosphere in which you can discover or rekindle your own creative abilities. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her partner and near her children and grandchild. She loves hanging out with family and friends, and is an avid reader.
