Dancing With Colour is a solo exhibition by Lorraine Barker, featuring varied and colourful semi-abstract landscapes in mixed media.

Having had a very varied career, I discovered painting quite late, at the age of 40.  Starting with watercolours, and progressing onto oils and acrylics, I have subsequently found that mixed media affords me the most freedom of expression.  I am most interested in depicting the landscape, where I can focus on the shapes,  colours and textures to make what I hope are paintings which excite the eye.

I am currently teaching art to a small but enthusiastic group in Poulton, Cirencester,  and I find it both satisfying and stimulating to pass on my experience.
