Barry lived in Snowdonia from 1985. His work was inspired by the mountains, river valleys and indigenous buildings of the area. He had two burning ambitions in life, "never to become an adult and never to have a "proper" job". He died from cancer in October 2012. His partner Anne now welcomes visitors to his studio and claims he succeeded in both those ambitions!
