My Bio Serena Barton, a native Oregonian, is passionate about making art.. Visual art was her first love as a child. Serena rediscovered her desire to make art after her first trip to Italy. She taught herself to paint and create mixed media work in her forties, earning her the right to insist that it is never too late to delve into what inspires you!

Serena’s business, The Art of Your Life, offers creativity and art workshops and groups, individual art coaching, in addition to counseling. Serena also teaches classes on women and creativity at Portland State University. Serena continues her own visual art career. She has exhibited and sold her work in Portland OR, Seattle WA, Bologna, Italy, and online. Her work has appeared in the art books Renascence , The Diptych Project and in Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Book for Cooks. One of Serena's great joys is to provide an atmosphere where you can discover or rekindle your own creative abilities.
