Barbara Georgacopoulos is a self-taught abstract artist who is based in Toronto, and works primarily in acrylic paint. After a previous career in the broadcasting industry, Georgacopoulos decided to pursue art making full time, and fulfill a life long dream of becoming a professional artist. Her passion for abstract art stems from the freedom to use intuition and imagination, to visually communicate her feelings and emotions.
After a few year of exploring impressionism, and attending various painting and drawing classes in Toronto, she began experimenting with acrylic mediums and nonrepresentational art. She has since been mentored by local professional artists, and participated in mark-making workshops.
Georgacopoulos continues exploring and experimenting with mark-making, using chalk, graphite, charcoal and paint, to evolve as an artist and expand her body of work.
