Colin Barker

Watercolour, acrylic and graphite
Shepreth

My art training was at the Hornsey College of Art where I achieved my National diploma in Design degree (BA)

I have been a freelance graphic designer for the past 38 years after working for various publishers and in government information. Whilst doing this I took opportunities to get out with paints and pencils to relax away from the constrictions of graphic design, choosing to paint or draw representationally as a contrast. Semi-retirement now allows more time for experimentation with watercolour and acrylic and occasional abstract subjects. I love landscape and occasional still life painting.
