I found lots of photographs of Canons Drive
|Found a piece of family history Leng Armac cards
Buying shoes - noticing that the Vans shoe logo had similarities to the Vulkaset logo my mother did about 1955 or 1956 commented on it at the Vans shop.
|Marcia had a baby book but never was written up
Marcia's baby book was the same of mine printed on the cover with her name
|Leigh family photographs from late 1930s and 1941
I found lots of old photographs probably from Rose which were originally my grandmothers
|Gwen died in January 2021
After several years at Hyman Fine House, the Jewish Care home in Brighton our mother Gwen died.
|Gwen - her singing
Gwen sang throughout our lives from her time singing for Ensa in Canada during the war.
|Gwen in Canada
We found a whole pile of photographs of my mother in Canada where she was between 1939 at the start of the war and 1946 when she came to the UK.
|My baby photographs
My mother kept a detailed record of my early years - I think probably until she became pregnant with my sister
I decided that as well as videos and family films it would be interesting to have a repository of family films
|Videos and family films now online
I have transferred the old family films and pictures and placed them on the web. For the videos and films I have put them onto a youtube clone.
When I came back to do artwork after many years of working as I did as a Chartered Accountant both in the City and also running a public company I started life drawing. I then went back to do foundation, a degree in printmaking and then a masters and my artwork was primary printmaking.
|My artwork - where is it going
I have had problems for a couple of years after an illness and bad back made it difficult to stand and cope with the weight of screen printing. Glass is very heavy and I badly damaged my back on a large piece of glass which remained for ages in the kiln.
|Barry's new artwork
My current artwork has mainly been generated on the computer.
In truth my artwork has been going through a bad time and I haven't produced much. For years I tended to use a combination of hand drawn and computer drawn artwork. This has matured in doing much more using the computer and tablet.
