About The Artist
Award Winning Artist, Designer,Maker, Woodcarver Gaenor Barker returns to enjoy her 3 chosen mediums, wood carving, pen and ink drawing and her latest passion ‘wild oak furniture’. Set right in an area of designated natural beauty and tranquility, her studios are set in idyllic surroundings and have a unique historical interest. Close to her woods she draws from life and really submerges herself into the landscape in all its glory.
Gaenor was commissioned by the school’s head teacher to create all the large scale woodcarvings seen at Chulmleigh Community College. Now also working on a smaller scale her personal work is highly original and detailed with a more ethereal quality. Some of her latest sculptures inspired by nature can be seen in the woods near her home. She becomes part of the landscapes she enters while capturing the views of her secret locations.
Her pastel portrait work equally captures the essence of character. An opportunity to purchase a Portrait sketch by Gaenor on weekend days and some weekdays will be available but better to check her times below and book!
