This is Barry Ross Smith's website. He spends most of his days in a small room with his music playing and a pencil or a brush in hand - scribbling out ideas in charcoal and paint. He is out-of-step with the artworld and growing out of touch with this digital life. Barry is most happy just playing along to the tune in his head, a tune he has been following most of his life. He is fortunate to have a supportive wife and is a proud father of two daughters.
Barry is involved with Pest free NZ; restoring the native wildlife from extinction. This crisis has been brought about by the introduction of predator animals and plant species into the native environment. Barry Ross Smith holds a Master of Fine Arts (Hons) degree.
