Long-term locals to the Lismore area may remember Allen Barker, who could often be seen painting outdoors in his artist’s beret during the 1950s. Barker has since praised one of his former Lismore High School teachers, Nancy Wilkie, who recognised his artistic talents and helped him to pursue a painting career. Barker moved to Europe in the 1960s and now lives in London. He has become a well recognised abstract painter.
