North American Nature and Landscapes
 
Barbara Kopeschny is a self-taught landscape and nature artist, painting full time from her studio home in Washago, Ontario. 



Inspired by rocky landscapes, granite cliffs and water views, her paintings often incorporate delicate birdlife or nature. In addition to personal exploration fuelled by museum visits and exhibitions, her work has benefitted from direct study with artists such as Loraine Tunley, Bruce St. Clair and Robert Bateman. 



Barbara's preferred medium is Acrylics. Her paintings emerge from the refinement of on-site sketches and photo reference to which she eliminates anything extraneous from her images and focuses on the spark of idea that initially attracted her to the landscape. The purity of elements included in her compositions, coupled with her attention to detail, supports not only that quality of peacefulness, but allows the viewer to appreciate that intimate moment with nature.

" Through my paintings, I want to transport the viewer back to nature... ultimately, to encourage them to go out, experience and protect our natural heritage."



Barbara Kopeschny is a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation. "The Artists for Conservation Foundation (AFC) - formerly the Worldwide Nature Artists Group (WNAG) - is a non-profit, international organization dedicated to the celebration and preservation of the natural world. The Foundation represents the world's leading collective of nature artists and an unparalleled pool of artistic talent focused on nature.
