YOLANDE BARKER paintings for sale. Artist Yolande Barker paints detailed and colourful abstracted figurative paintings using acrylic on canvas. She is a Margaret River Artist and is constantly inspired by vibrant colours and interesting patterns in her environment, whether it be in a shop, magazine, or nature, these moments and material things that to many would seem ordinary, spark a painting idea in Yolande and she will turn it into an intricate work on canvas for the rest of us to admire. Her early painting passion was ignited by her Granddad Addison Barker, when visiting his studio his pots of watercolour looked like candy, and drawings and artworks surrounded the room. Yolande’s Great Uncle Leach Barker was also an Australian Artist, and a great source of inspiration. This in turn led Yolande to study her diploma in Fine Art in 1996, and has not stopped painting since.
