He received his BFA in Sculpture from East Carolina University in 1987, and his MFA in Sculpture from the University of Arizona in 1991. He also studied in Cortona, Italy, through the University of Georgia Studies Abroad Program. In 1991 Barber was awarded a yearlong residency at the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program in New Mexico. After returning to North Carolina in 1992, he received a Southern Arts Federation/NEA Regional Visual Arts Fellowship in Sculpture, and a North Carolina Arts Council Visual Artist Fellowship, both in 1993. In 1994, Barber moved to Wichita Falls, Texas, to teach Sculpture and Metalsmithing at Midwestern State University. He left in 2000 to teach at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, where he is currently Associate Professor of Sculpture. Barber is a founding member of the Texas Atomic Iron Commission, comprised of sculpture educators dedicated to the dissemination of iron casting as an approach to art making.
