Artist's Bio

Since childhood, Bobbi Shulman has been fascinated by color and light. But she put her interest in art aside for many years to follow a career in journalism and communications. In 2003, she dusted off the easel, enrolled in a painting course and has been hooked ever since.

Originally drawn to plein air, Bobbi painted landscapes that were representational with an impressionistic edge. But her interest in abstract painting has enabled her to express her excitement in manipulating color, shape and intensity into a coordinated whole. Over the past few years, she has attempted to develop her painting personality and discover some of the endless possibilities for personal expression. Her paintings are intuitive, spontaneous and emotional, frequently leaning toward whimsy and fantasy.

Bobbi has studied abstract painting extensively with Joyce McCarten, a well-known artist and teacher in the Washington DC area. She has also studied with Natasha Karpinskaia and Beverly Ryan. Workshops include California artists Camille Przewodek and Peggy Kroll-Roberts, and Easton artist Nancy Tankersley. Her painting travels have taken her to Provence, Mexico and the Southwest United States. She has shown extensively around the Washington DC area.


Bobbi lives in Potomac, MD, with husband Larry and receives frequent critiques from three children, their spouses and five grandchildren.
