Barleigh
(Mrs. Barbara Leighton)

1911 - 1986

B.C. Society of Fine Arts

Barleigh (Mrs. Barbara Leighton) was born in Plymouth, England in 1911. She exhibited her work under the name Barleigh, a combination of her first name and her husband's last name.

She exhibited a colour woodblock print with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in their annual exhibition in 1942.

She was the wife of noted artist A.C. Leighton, and composed her woodcuts entirely from works by her husband. After selecting a painting, she would trace over it and then make a number of blocks for colour. She generally made editions of 100, and is thought to have only produced about fifteen different prints.
