About Me

You Are Here:

Kathy Barker

I trained at Wimbledon School of Art gaining BA Honors in Fine Art (painting) and a Master of Art in Printmaking. Following my formal education I was awarded a studio at the Florence Trust, London and latterly commissioned to write ‘Drawing and Painting the Clothed Figure’ published 2005.

Following my passion for portraiture…

As my career progressed I followed my true passion for portraiture and studied at the Charles Cecil Studio (Florence, Italy) in the atelier fashion. In addition to my portrait painting I am currently providing Postgraduate drawing tutorship at West Dean College which is part of the Edward James Foundation.

Throughout my career I have exhibited work at selective exhibitions including the Society of Women Artists 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and at the Royal Society of Portrait Painting 2008.
