I began my career in print design switching to digital in 1998 as part of the team that put the Guardian newspaper online. I then spent 2 years working full time at Digit before going freelance. Most recently I’ve been specialising in mobile apps.

In January 2013 I started painting and have since had my work published and exhibited at The Mall Galleries and The Whitechapel Gallery. You can view my work at chrisbarnesart.tumblr.com

I also co-run a beehive rental company based in London called barnesandwebb.com
