David Lloyd Glover was trained as an artist starting at the Victoria School of Fine Art while still in elementary school. David began working as a full-time editorial illustrator after high school and was mentored by the noted Canadian artist and cartoonist, Sid Barron. David had six illustrations published weekly by a major daily newspaper for five years. He then turned his illustration skills and discipline to a successful career in the graphic arts and advertising industry, gradually shifting to exclusively producing gallery artwork. For the past 28 years, David has been a full-time fine artist creating original works in watercolor, oil, and acrylic for galleries and fine-art publishers internationally. His subject matter is wide ranging, and his techniques are equally as varied. David paints in series that share a similar theme—from mountain landscapes and seascapes to still lifes and gardens of the United Kingdom. David also finds himself painting scenes of Japan, the missions of California, and country life in Tuscany. It all depends on where his interest has directed his artistic attention.
