Desmond Fountain FRBS (b.1946)

Although born in Bermuda in 1946, he spent his early childhood in West Africa.  He pursued art studies in colleges at Stoke-on-Trent and Exeter (where he was President of the Student's Guild), and while a post-graduate at Bristol University, he was commissioned to create a sculpture of their Nobel Prize winner: Cecil Frank Powell.  Other noteworthy portrayals are those of Princess Margaret, Felix Dennis, Mark Twain and Sir George Somers, all of which may be found in the richly illustrated book, Desmond Fountain, Sculptor.

He divides his time between Bermuda and Europe.
