Art was always Barry's favourite subject at school and his wonderful art teacher encouraged him to further his education and follow a career in art and design.
Barry completed foundation art and design at Yeovil College and went on to Taunton College. He studied Graphic design and packaging design for his Degree.
He worked in design studios for a number of years but illustration was always his first love. During the Covid lockdowns, he found the courage to set up his own business.
Barry has traded at craft fairs and pop-ups across Dorset. It’s been an amazing adventure. He is influenced by Pop art, Quentin Blake, Arthur Rackham, Studio Ghibli, and Japanese Woodcut prints.
He has plans to expand his range of clothing for 2024 and produce a ton of animation.
