Involved in textiles from an early age, Barbara Shapiro began weaving in 1975 in New York City. Barbara combines her rich knowledge of historical and ethnic textiles with broad technical experience in weaving and surface design. Her weaving reflects her travels and studies and her work in theater costume design.

 After being involved in the San Francisco Art to Wear movement in the 1970s and 1980s, Barbara shifted her focus to non-functional textile art. Barbara's wall pieces speak of historic textiles of many cultures, burnished with the patina of time and imbued with a personal sense of beauty.
