davina barber

After graduating in Art History from Bristol University Davina worked in London for both the Dickinson and Timothy Taylor Galleries.

She went on to set up her own business sourcing unusual furniture and fine art for clients. By then, with four small children in tow, she decided to move back to her home county of Norfolk. Here she discovered a wealth of talented artists and artisans hidden amongst the beautiful landscape and Norfolk by Design* was born: pop up exhibitions in rustic, rural spaces. *now called Contemporary and Country

Davina has since set up on her own,  exhibiting artists beyond Norfolk, launching herself into the London art scene at Fair For Saatchi in June 2019 and most recently a Works on Paper show at London’s Frestonian Gallery in February 2020. 

Davina is currently helping EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) raise funds for their invaluable Art Therapy Programme. She has acquired over 20 works of art from East Anglian based artists for an exclusive auction to take place in Cambridge in February 2021. Works donated include  those from Antony Gormley and John Virtue.
