Painting primarily in oils, Barrowman works from Krowji Studios, Redruth. His work is focussed on Cornish landscapes - especially the areas around Porthleven, Mullion and the Lizard. He is interested in coastal landscapes and seascapes in representational style, with a special interest in capturing the changing light.

In July 2021 Barrowman won the Bowyer Drawing Prize at the New English Art Club in London. In 2024 he won the Artist Magazine Award at the 125th Pastel Society Exhibition which was held at the Mall Galleries in London.
