Born in Newcastle, David studied art at Sunderland College of Art and at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne before embarking on a teaching career that lasted from 1965 to 2000. He taught in colleges in Tyneside, in Jamaica and in Scarborough. In 1995 he obtained an M.A. in Fine Art from the University of Humberside. He is now a full time painter and works from his home in Cumbria.
David works mostly in oils, often making very large paintings. He also produces etchings and drawings.
