Barbara Baker

Barbara Baker was born in Manchester and studied at the Manchester Regional College of Art.

In September 1986 she presented her first solo exhibition at the Tib Lane Gallery in Manchester.

John Robert-Blunn wrote in the Manchester Evening News - “For her first one man exhibition, Cheshire based artist Barbara Baker, has gathered a powerful collection in a wide range of media at the Tib Lane Gallery. By far the most impressive pictures are the portraits which have strength whatever the medium or tint of heavy paper. They have strength of character so that one feels that one actually knows the models.

Barbara Baker’s bigger pictures are even better and there are two fine nudes which are not only good life studies, they seem full of vitality” .

Subsequent solo exhibitions include :-

-The R & A Gallery Alderley Edge

-The Tib Lane Gallery Manchester

The Hurlingham Gallery London - Watercolours and Drawings Magazine wrote - ”Many fine drawings of the female nude and portrait paintings by the Cheshire based artist Barbara Baker are on show at the Hurlingham Gallery in the Kings Road. Finely coloured and strongly executed pastel portraits”.

-The Tib Lane Gallery Manchester

-The Riverside Gallery London
