Barbara was a serious and disciplined student. She worked hard. She must have had talent or else they wouldn't have accepted her at the Central school of Art in London. I was always amazed by the drawings Barbara made. In 1983 I was in London visiting her school. There I asked her old teacher if Barbara was a talented student. She said that Barbara was very good in mastering the techniques but she was not very creative, that was the reason that she didn't get a high score for her degree. Therefore I don't think she could have made a career in art.
