While Barry has owned various art galleries for many years, it was not until roughly 4 years ago that he picked up a paintbrush and began his own artistic journey.

Despite having no previous artistic education himself, his love of art shines through in his own works. He prefers bright and bold colors and brush strokes, and his subjects range from local hangouts to sailing art to animals (especially cats!).

When he's not painting, Barry enjoys the sailing life on the sea.

His two pets, Chewbacca the poodle and Precious the kitty are the local mascots of the gallery.
