Barry moved from his native Manchester to Cornwall in 1979 where he met and worked alongside a group of extremely active artists. This hands on experience, together with a will to succeed, has seen him become one of the most sought after artists and he is well represented in private galleries and collections throughout the UK and Ireland.
Barry has a talent for capturing the mystery of ships with their tall masts at anchorage, tethered in harbours and inlets in misty moonlight. After discovering this, and with nostalgia in mind, he went on to paint Victorian gas light street scenes. These have proved to be extremely popular.
He is well-known to visitors in Cornwall where he has painted for a number of years.
Barry’s work is represented in many private collections throughout Europe and is widely exhibited in the U.K.
