Barbara Tabachnick

In former life I was a Professor of Psychology (statistics, research design, perception) at CSUN for 25 years and belly dancer (and costume maker) for 16 of those years. Currently I am an artist, consultant in statistics and research design, co-author of the most popular multivariate statistics book, traveler, and swing dancer. I’ve been in multiple juried local, national, and international group shows since 2004, with some prizes along the way. Solo shows (some shared) include those at the late, lamented, Orlando Gallery; Council Gallery of the NCJWLA (National Council of Jewish Women, Los Angeles); Madrid Theatre; and Artist Alley at Calabasas Tennis and Swim Center. I was twice invited to exhibit at Ontario International Airport. Current organizations include Collage Artists of America (website and Zoom manager and soft techie), California Art League, Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art, LELA (Zoom secretary), and Encaustic Art Institute.

Artist's Message...

At heart I’m an experimental artist—“What will happen if…?” I work in acrylic, watercolor, encaustic, mixed media and digital photography at all levels of (occasional) realism and abstraction. I love to explore phone and computer apps – digital creation and manipulation of images provides hours of joy playing with my thousands of images. I make art because the process feels good and the anticipation of the outcome is exhilarating. My favorite works include a bit of whimsy, a touch of the incongruous, some ambiguity and, perhaps, a measure of beauty.
