Barry Tinsley earned his BFA at William and Mary and his MFA at the University of Iowa. He taught sculpture years ago but has dedicated himself to his art and has been a full time sculptor since 1976.


For over forty-five years Barry has been renowned for his monumental large scale outdoor public sculptures, which grace the landscape throughout the country from the rural rolling prairie to the tight confines of the urban jungle of Chicago, and exploring those spaces in between. His abstract and non-representation work, have a power and majesty that have stood the test of time and still continue to attract an audience both new and old.
