Barbara Stone has exclusively used the image of polar bears as a personal symbol in her artwork since 1979. Her research has taken her to Canada’s Northwest Territories, the Yukon and Alaska to study the yearly migration of polar bears. A self-taught artist, she has developed a unique style of incorporating colored pencil with watercolor in her paintings.
