Barry Lee (they/them) is an illustrator, muralist & storyteller based in Atlanta, GA.

Barry is a creative problem solver who tells meaningful stories using a cast of colorful characters and always a dash of mindfulness and intention. Growing up with a rare syndrome called Nager's Syndrome, they spent their time drawing constantly as a distraction from endless doctor’s appointments and surgeries. Barry turned that distraction as a child into a career as an adult, learning that “distraction” was a form of healing through creating art. Barry’s process is rooted in making sure that the work they put out is intentional, whether it’s doing extensive research for client projects or looking within their own intuition to create illustrations that resonate heavily with others’ experiences.
