Patricia Barker

Patricia completed an MA in Fine Art at University of Central England in 1994. She has exhibited at The Discerning Eye and the Royal Society of British Artists. She is a member of Chelsea Art Society and in 2020 was awarded the Sloane Stanley medal. Patricia has been teaching sculpture, both modelling and carving since 1991.

Approach to teaching

I hope to inspire a love of sculpture and to help students find their own individual means of expression.

What inspires your own work

I’m drawn to the figure and I find that stone carving allows a more intuitive approach. I would like my work to convey feeling and presence.
