Born in 1957 in London, Barry graduated from Winchester School of Art in 1979 dreaming of one day becoming a full-time artist.
He says this " I moved to Devon in 2004 and on setting up my own Studio in Appletree Cottage that dream became much closer. I have now moved to Seaton and with the sea only 1 mile away and stunning countryside on my doorstep, the subject matter is endless.
Impressionism is a big influence on my work. I like to be Bold and Distinctive in my approach, not to fussy. whilst keeping a figurative feel. My main Medium is Oils, either on Gessoed Board of Linen Canvas.
