1938 -
On leaving school, Roy trained at the London School of Printing & Graphic Art. Studies included airbrush work, graphic design and life drawing. After National Service (where he designed a number of RAF station badges in co-operation with the Royal College of Heraldry) he resumed his studies and entered an advertising agency as a general artist. He designed the chequered flag box for Kleenex for Men during the 60’s and was responsible for many major company themes. He was commissioned for a number of portraits including some of the golfing stars such as Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Sandy Lyle and Tony Jacklin (after his team’s successful Ryder Cup victory).

In 1985 he met Prof. Claus Grimm, the German art expert who was compiling his book on Dutch still life Painting. This was the catalyst which whetted his appetite to achieve an English version of a Dutch Old Master. His admiration for the Old Masters such as Willem Claesz Heda, Jan Davidsz, Cornelius de Heem, Willem Kalf and Adrian Coorte led him to study their work and learn about their techniques. To this day he is still experimenting with various mediums to improve the quality of his work. His one man exhibition of 21 paintings in 2001 at the Barry Keene Gallery in Henley was sold out. His 2006 exhibition at the Oakham Gallery was also a sell out.

The Mitchell Studio Gallery has sold a number of his of paintings and is proud to be associated with Roy Barley; we have found an Artist we can thoroughly recommend. His depiction of ceramics and glass and use of light is quite outstanding.
