Stein received a B.F.A. from Carnegie-Mellon University and an M.A. from New York University. Barbara Stein currently lives in the New York City area.


My paintings explore and express the vibrancy and subtlety of color, creating an intangible ethereal or atmospheric quality. I capture the imagery and moments – sometimes small and commonplace – that resonate within. I paint close views and simplify and distill the composition and other elements.

My current body of work grows out of past and present life experiences. Having lived in New York City, Vermont, and Long Island each of these places has affected and inspired my paintings. I select the media – oil, pastel, watercolor, or drawing materials – that best suit my subjects.
