Lamorna Birch was born in Cheshire England. He was self-taught as an artist, other than for a brief period of study at the Academie Colarossi In Paris during 1895.
Birch settled in Lamorna Cornwall in 1892 where many of his most famous pictures date from this time and the beautiful Lamorna Cove is usually their subject matter. He was attracted to Cornwall by the Newlyn group of artists but he ended up starting a second group based around his adopted home of Lamorna.
He exhibited at theRoyal Academy from 1893. He held his first one man exhibition at the Fine Arts Society in 1906. He is said to have produced more than 20,000 pictures. Like a number of his contemporaries, he was profiled as an ‘Artist of Note’ in The Artist magazine, by Richard Seddon, in the June 1944 edition.
