Barbara Slitkin


Lives & works in New York, NY 10014

 The intent personally and professionally in the overall group consciousness, is to be attendant to what needs to be expressed through the art with respect for what I strive for within self.  


1. Purity 2. Generosity 3. Patience 4. Kindness 5. Discipline/Conservation 6. Diligence 7. Humility. 


In a world that is undergoing hyper velocity towards unknown territory, my aim for every day a potential win-win in all partnerships.
