Biography from ArtSanDiego:
Helen Margaret Barker was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on November 24, 1917. The Barker family moved to, and settled in, the Los Angeles area in the 1920's. Barker comes from a very talented family in the areas of art and music. She began her artistic career during her teenage years while in Los Angeles. She specialized in oil, acrylic, and watercolor renditions of the Monterey Peninsula landscape, and floral still lifes. She moved with her first husband, Frank Barker, to the Monterey Peninsula in 1954. After her first husband passed away in 1960 she married Cecil "Nick" LeFeuvre, also an artist in the Carmel area.

Primarily a "self taught" artist, she did receive portrait painting instruction from noted artist Christian Von Schneidau. During her years on the Monterey Peninsula she received tutelage and critique from Donald Teague.

Barker was a member of the Carmel Art Association from 1958 until her death in 1998. During that time she served on the Associations Board of Directors on several occasions. In addition, she was a member of the Society of Western Artists, the Scandinavian American Art Society in Los Angeles, and the Artists Guild of America in Carmel.

Her works have been exhibited in several one woman shows at the Carmel Art Association over the years. In addition, her works have been exhibited at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, the Rosicrucian Gallery in San Jose, the Richmond Art Center, the Santa Cruz Art League, the Artists Guild of America, Museum of Natural History in Pacific Grove, the Los Angeles City Hall Tower, The Ebell Salon of Art, the Bowers Museum, and the Biltmore Gallery in Los Angeles. Barker and her husband owned and operated a gallery in Carmel until 1987. A retrospective exhibition of her work was presented by the Carmel Art Association in 1999.

In 1985 she collaborated with Peggy Peter to produce a book of poetry, which featured her illustrations, published by Angel Press. Barker died at the Hospice House in Monterey, California on April 5, 1998.
