Stephanie Barta

Stephanie Linden Barta currently lives in Port Colborne Ontario, but
lived in Fonthill for most of her life. She has an Honours Double Major
degree in fine art and classical music from Brock University, 1997-2001,
and received Outstanding Achievement Awards for both her majors there.
She also enjoyed the Graphic Arts and Design program at Niagara College,
1995-1997, graduating with honours. She works in many styles and
mediums, with varying subject matter. Her favourite medium is acrylic
paints on stretched canvas; she loves the vivid colours this medium
produces. She also has experience in water colours, chalk and oil
pastels, oil sticks, coloured pencils, charcoal, artist's markers,
pencil and ink, etc. Subject matter varies from the moody and personal,
to celebrations of bright colour and form in large abstract pieces. Both
abstract and realistic styles are explored in her body of work. Painting
has always been a form of therapy for Stephanie, a way of putting
thoughts and emotions into images on canvas or paper; a way to
communicate with others how she is feeling, in a way words never could
