Serena Barton blends her long career as a Licensed Counselor with her passion for art. Visual art was her first love as a child. Eventually this gave way to theater, then to her work as a counselor and raising children. Serena rediscovered her desire to make art after her first trip to Italy. She taught herself to paint and create mixed media work in her forties, earning her the right to insist that it is never too late to delve into what inspires us.
Her new book, Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop: Mixed Media Techniques for Embracing Imperfection and Celebrating Happy Accidents is currently #! in Mixed Meida on Amazon!
Serena continues to show and sell her work in galleries and online. Her business, 'The Art of Your Life' provides creativity/art workshops at national and international art retreats.
