Soozy Barker artwork for sale and artist biography
Soozy Barker is an experienced published artist specialising in producing contemporary mixed media art works. Known for her absorbing and vibrant abstracts she is inspired by the reflections, patterns & colours of nature and the world around her.
She was initially trained as an artist by her Father, Jon Barker, whose own work is published internationally. However she... has developed her own unique style and specialist techniques using a variety of media.
Her Directorship of the Barker Gallery keeps her in touch with trends and fashions within the art and interior design world. Exhibiting regularly at major art fairs keeps her in tune with client's needs and expectations.
Her painting process entails hours of pouring, splashing, blending and flicking, often using 20-30 brushes, metallic acrylics, oil paints, spray paints, gold and silver leaf, mixing and thinning mediums, and numerous other tools and materials. "I can spend hours without leaving the easel; the process becomes hypnotic. I can't leave a piece until I'm absolutely happy. The surface of the paint has to be as serene as the feeling the image gives the viewer."
Soozy works directly with her clients but also with interior design companies. She has completed over 100 commissions and sold countless individual pieces which are hung in private and corporate collections throughout the UK and all over the world.
