Barry Walker was born in Sydney, Australia. He began his artistic training at the age of ten at the East Sydney College of Art where he studied portraiture. At seventeen, Barry was selected to take portrait lessons with one of Australia's foremost portrait artists, Joshua Smith. Barry worked as a professional graphic artist in Canada for over thirty years where he developed a keen sense of composition and colour balance, elements that have become integral to his unique artistic style.

While maintaining a passion for portraits over his career, Barry's current artistic output focuses primarily on landscapes and seascapes, drawing inspiration from the BC coast, the Maritime provinces, and his home country of Australia. Barry has been a member of both the Portrait Society of America and the Portrait Society of Canada, and for 12 years was an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, exhibiting his work at many Federation shows.
