About Barbara L. Chapman

Barbara begins each piece holding the intention of expressing a vision connected with both the spiritual and practical aspects of life.   As she guides the materials, the work unfolds and expands, taking on a life of it’s own.

The volunteer work she does with homeless youth at the Sanctuary Art Center in Seattle,W.A. reinforces her drive to express the beauty, grace and courage that can be found in each of us no matter what our circumstances are.  A willingness to see it  is all that’s required.    That experience continues to inspire her work while she seeks new outlets for encouraging creative expression , as a means to healing ,  among struggling  street youth.
