Al Barker was born in New Jersey and raised within the metropolitan area where he learned to appreciate the outdoors by hunting and fishing. These activities led him to pursue academic studies where he earned a B.S. and M.S. in Forestry and later received a National Fellowship for Doctorate work. For a few years, Al was a forestry-educator and taught post-secondary education; however, for the past thirty-five years, Al has been a full-time artist who specializes in smaller-sized paintings, which are completed in oil. He
has won over fifty awards in premier art competitions and has had a painting accepted into The White House Collection in Washington, D.C.
