Peter Barker

Peter Barker RSMA was born in 1954 in Banbury, Oxfordshire, where he spent his childhood. Much of his inherent love of nature and interest in conservation was instilled through this local countryside.

Peter is self-taught and although he had always been interested in drawing and painting, his first career was as a professional golfer. Following his golfing career he became a full-time artist and has been exhibiting his work since 1985.

He has held numerous highly accclaimed shows and is in ever-increasing demand. His work can be found in private collections in the UK, USA and Australia.

Peter's work has been accepted by the major Art Societies and he has won three awards: the Frank Herring Award at the Pastel Society in 2006, the Ranelagh Press Award for 'An outstanding Small Oil' and the Stanley Grimm Award for the public's favourite painting at the ROI in 2009. He is a Member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists.

He paints a wide variety of subjects - landscapes, marine, wildlife, still-life and portraits. He works with oil, pastel, acrylic and watercolour
