Barry Lewis Beardy was raised in Lake St. Martin First Nation, a community located in the north Interlake region of Manitoba. Barry is enrolled at the University of Manitoba School of Fine Arts, and is pursuing a diploma of Fine Arts. His passion to paint and draw has been a natural ability and has inspired him to further his education.
At a very young age, his father introduced him to horses. From that time, grew a passion and a love for these magnificent animals, which has influenced his work. Since the late 1980's Barry has competed in rodeos as a saddle bronc and bull rider. This lifelong affair of raising, training and owning many horses has brought the experience to produce realistic and imaginary portraits. With his knowledgeable background he is able to capture the reflecting surface colours, expressive reactions and emotions of his equine subjects.
