The Paintings

Barry began drawing and painting at age four, encouraged by his cousin Thomas Marshall whose own cartoon work inspired Barry. At age 13 he won a statewide (Georgia) art competition, and again achieved this at age fourteen. He was extended a full art scholarship to the University of Georgia by Lamar Dodd, but turned it down to attend Georgia State for one year to study under Joe Perrin. Barry would leave his art education to pursue entertainment, little realizing that he would return to his first love later in life and incorporate it into his creative endeavors in a very serious way.
