Barbara Shenefield

I am an illustrator and designer. Native New Yorker, currently in Charlottesville, Virginia. Living in such a beautiful place makes making art easy.

My education is in art, architecture, and science. I have a BFA in visual art from Purchase College, and attended architecture school at Cooper Union.

My posters are in a style reminiscent of the classic posters of the National Parks. Though they have a retro sensibility, they are also very clean and contemporary looking.

I draw either on paper or directly in the computer. The posters are printed with a very high-resolution printer using ultrachrome inks on high quality Kao-Lin paper. The flat, densely pigmented areas of color have an appearance similar to silkscreened prints.

I do custom work.
