Artist Profile

Barry Freeman

Barry Freeman was born in Northampton in 1937. Following ten years in the Royal Navy and several years in the electronics and aviation industry, he took up teaching, drawing and painting before early retirement gave him the opportunity to become a professional artist.

An avid railway enthusiast since childhood, his combined love of art and railways is reflected in the detailed paintings in which he now specialises.

In 1995, Barry was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and is a former deputy president of the Guild of Railway Artists.

Barry sadly passed away in December 2017. He was an extraordinary gentleman who painted an array of wonderful transport puzzles for Gibsons over the years. His paintings were enjoyed by all and it is an honour to have published Barry’s paintings as jigsaws for so many years.
