For Barry Painting and drawing have always played an important role in his life and although largely self taught, his semi professional career began painting alongside a group of extremely active artists in Cornwall under the guidance of Mr Leonard Rollason. Known affectionately through the art trade as "Rolli" it was he who mentored and kept him going through the early years of learning my trade.
Since those early days in Cornwall subject matter has come and gone though the demand for ships in harbours and victorian gas light street scenes continue.
Refusing to be stereotyped, he has always experimented with new subject matter and has recently had considerable success with beach scenes and landscape in a modern and contemporary style.
