Born in Wales and raised in Canada, David spent the majority of his formative years with his head in a comic book. He attributes that childhood obsession as a catalyst for his passion for art and the realization that he didn't want to pursue a career doing anything else.

He moved to Vancouver in 2010 and began exhibiting his work not long after. Having exhibited in a number of galleries, both in Canada and internationally, David's work can be found in collections all over the world.
