Hi, I'm Barb Chaisson.

I am a mixed media artist living on Boston's South Shore. I enjoy painting all things coastal from Kennebunkport to Captiva especially the sailing activity surrounding the Boston Harbor Islands and Lake Sunapee.

After earning a B.F.A. in Design at Massachusetts College of Art & Design I spent many years as an award winning art director & designer in Boston's advertising industry.

I have also been fortunate to study with some great artist instructors: Donna Rossetti-Bailey, Marcia Ballou, Nancy Colella, Page Railsback, Laurinda O'Connor and Kim Alemian - all masters of their different mediums.
