Soozy Barker

Soozy Barker is an experienced published artist. Her absorbing and atmospheric landscapes challenge our perceptions of reality. They lead us into the dream-like world of her imagination often creating moody, foggy landscapes and ambiguous seascapes. She takes inspiration from visits to marshlands and river estuaries whilst literature and poetry also provide sources of inspiration.  In particular, her "Search for the Convict" series was inspired by the Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations" with it's haunting and dramatic descriptions of the Hackney Marsh.

Soozy 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 work is hung in private and corporate collections throughout the UK and all over the world.
