Helen Barker 

Fine Artist :: portraits and landscapes

We are delighted with our painting and want to thank Helen for capturing the character of our little one so beautifully. I don’t think I shall ever tire of looking at it. Helen is a lovely person to work with and has a friendly, easy manner and great communication. – Rosie.L

Thank you for our painting – it’s lovely, you’ve really captured my childrens’ personalities well  – we are really pleased, thank you! – Nanette.O

Helen recently painted a portrait of my daughter as a surprise gift organised by my husband. The portrait was just beautiful and captured Ivy’s likeness and character so well, I cried when I opened it! We’re now expecting twins and I can’t wait to commission Helen to paint them when they arrive! Thank so much Helen! – Emma. D

I asked Helen to paint a portrait of my son as a Christmas present for my husband. She really captured him well from the photos I sent her. It has pride of place on our wall now. Thank you Helen. – Kathryn. M


Hello! I’m Helen; I  paint portraits and landscapes, working in both oils and watercolour depending on my subject and my mood! I love painting portraits of babies and children, they are so fresh and full of colour. I also love to paint landscapes inspired by places I’ve been or imagine myself going to. I am currently painting one painting a day for 100 days so do look at my 100 paintings page and follow me on instagram @helenbarkerpainting and @helenbarkerportraits for regular updates! 

If you’d like to know more about my commissions, or have a portrait painted, get in touch! I’d love to hear from you. Love HelenBx
