Rhiannon Barry - Picture

Rhiannon is a self-taught visual artist born on August 10th, 1982 in St. Catharines Ontario. She spent a large majority of her childhood and teen years on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Now living in Niagara Falls, Ontario, she creates whimsical acrylic paintings and favours dream-like nature and water scenes, drawing from the Northern scenery of her youth. Finding solace and comfort through art during many of life’s challenges, Rhiannon engages in creative creation as a form of self-care.

Most recently, Rhiannon was chosen to show in the City of St. Catharines annual juried art exhibit. This year’s theme was truth and reconciliation. In solidarity with indigenous cultures, she created a piece featuring hope for the future. Rhiannon has also had pieces in exhibits in Hamilton and Niagara Falls. Rhiannon also creates emotive portrait paintings, uniquely capturing meaningful messages and emotions. You can currently find two of her pieces hanging in Third Space Café in Niagara Falls, ON.

Rhiannon is currently pursuing certification as an art therapist and counselor. She has been working and volunteering in the social services industry in Niagara for 11 years.  With a focus on providing calming and mindful experiences, she shares on-line painting and creating tutorials and in-person classes with intentional therapeutic programming built in.
