a photo of me with the work (2008)

Lambert Barker's son Jack Barker with the work "The Last Train Home"

Last year I donated one of my works "The Last Train Home".
I received a phone call from my Mother today (Anzac Day) to tell me that there was an article published in the The Advertiser titled:
Brothers in arms at Neath Hotel on the 22/04/2009
thanks Mum as I certainly wouldn't have been aware of the article otherwise!!!

    Kim, that is so awesome! Justly deserved recognition for one fine portrait. The size is amazing. It is neat seeing you beside it, it gives the painting even more meaning. Bravo for you Kim, you are such a great artist. Your design and the draftsmanship are superb.
