Barry grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, still lives in Cleveland, and hopes to die somewhere besides Cleveland. He received a BFA in painting from Bowling Green State University. He illustrates children's books, writes and draws greeting cards, and raids the refrigerator from his home studio. His work can be seen at www.barrygott.com, in children's books like Dino-Hockey by Lisa Wheeler and on greeting cards from Recycled Paper Greetings.
