Art & Interiors
'Every artist was first an amateur'
Helen Barker was always a great teacher in my school who always encouraged me to try new things and made the time to teach me techniques i wanted to learn. She really helped me discover what art has to offer and also made every effort to make the lessons enjoyable which made a huge difference to how I felt about art. This made me want to pursue art as a career path and Helen helped me in every way she could with this and I have just finished my degree in Fine Art and am now on the right path to a career in the Arts, but none of this would have been possible without the knowledge and support I received from Helen.
BA (Hons) Fine Art graduate
Helen is a committed artist and an excellent teacher. She understands the importance of staying in touch with contemporary art and cultural shifts. Professionally I hold Helen in high esteem, she is an engaging and trusted colleague.

My daughter loved her craft club with Helen. She was very excited to tell me how good it was and came away with paint everywhere, but very happy! Highly recommended!
