Born in Sidcup, Kent, and educated at Christ's Hospital, Horsham, Barron worked with Will ASHTON in Sydney, Australia from 1928-49. He returned to England, and studied with Robin GUTHRIE and Arthur Ralph Middleton TODD at City and Guilds Art School in 1950-51.
He lived in Cornwall for a while, but by 1957 he was living in Sussex and ceased to exhibit with STISA after 1962. He was highly regarded for his marine paintings.
