Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Edwards has worked in the theatre, television, radio and audio plays, as a director and writer. Edwards is also an artist and his pictures hang in galleries and private collections across Europe as well as being exhibited widely within the UK. Following a successful show at the Blue Lias gallery in Lyme Regis, Barnaby was asked to form one third of the Three West Country Artists exhibition in 1998. The Kingfisher Gallery in Devon held a major exhibition of his work encompassing nearly thirty new paintings, and in 2006 he exhibited a selection of pieces at the FSA Summer Exhibition.

Barnaby regularly lectures on art history and art techniques, both in Britain and farther afield. He has given talks on subjects as diverse as European Narrative Painting, Pastel Techniques, Victorian Sea Paintings, Life Drawing, and Greek and Roman Myths in Western Art. He also gives practical tuition both to individuals and to groups, including art workshops on landscape, figure and still life.

In 2010, Barnaby set up Textbook Stuff, specialising in audiobooks of classic short stories and poems. Readers include Miriam Margolyes, Andrew Sachs, Peter Guinness, John Sessions, Nicholas Pegg and David Soul. The company distributes via iTunes, Amazon and other online distributors.

In November 2013 he also appeared in the one-off 50th anniversary comedy homage The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.[1]
