Tom Barker – Artist
Tom Barker was born in Hampshire in 1978 & grew up in Cornwall. Rediscovering his childhood talent for art through a hobby of sketching and drawing, he is now painting full time.
Painting in oil & watercolour with no formal training Tom has a versatile approach to his art and takes inspiration from a diverse range of subjects, but concentrates mainly on interesting contemporary scenes, from Cornish harbours to French markets and traditional still lifes.
