Barbara Sullivan grew up in New York City and she has resided in Belchertown for the past 50 years. During the course of her professional career she taught foreign languages to students from 7th grade through the college level. Along with a colleague she created and presented professional development workshops for teachers throughout New England. She now enjoys teaching classes in Alcohol Ink Art in many venues and at private events.
Just as she is fluent in several languages and was a creative and lively teacher. She loves color and whimsy and uses a wide variety of artistic techniques. Her paintings lift our spirits.
Barbara did not have shows in mind when she began to paint. After one art class attended to accompany a friend, she was hooked. She has now shown her work in Amherst, Belchertown, Granby, Wilbraham, Baltimore and New York.
She likes nothing better than to take refuge in her studio and continue to create.
