My name is Bari-Lynn Friedlander and I am an abstract artist currently based in Palm Beach, with a previous career in the design and fashion industry in New York City. I worked for the largest luxury conglomerate in the world with high end international clients, as well as designed for some of America’s biggest retailers. In 2019, I left my job and made the return back to my passion for painting: the one thing that always made me happy no matter the surrounding circumstances. At a time of social unrest for our nation (COVID-19, the 2020 presidential election, and Black Lives Matter), I found that my art could once again be used in a way to spread love rather than hate.
I battled with depression in my past and the one thing that always brought me out of my darkness (the light when I couldn't find a way out) was my art. Art truly saved my life and I believe that my purpose is to share this light and love with others.
My most recognizable paintings, the Abstract Cubism Series is my creative expression of spreading love. These works convey a motif that is personal to my patrons through vibrant colors and mesmerizing lines and allow me to incorporate hidden motifs and symbols that represent my clients and their loved ones. In all my works, I aim to explore the human connection, capturing this through abstraction and layering in my Cubism Series, as well as the simplicity and movement of a thin line in my Abstract Line Drawings.
Originally from Fairfield County, Connecticut I graduated with a Fine Arts degree from Tulane University which led me to exploring a career in design and fashion in New York City until recently moving to Palm Beach to begin my career as an artist.
I am an advocate for mental health awareness, which plays a leading role in my life and my work.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.

As an advocate for mental health awareness and one who has battled with depression in the past (and continues to do so with anxiety) I hope that my art brings love and light into my clients' homes and sparks an open conversation about mental health awareness.
