Bruce was born in northern England on the bleak border of North Staffordshire and Derbyshire, and seemed destined to follow in his father’s footsteps as a coal miner. Until, that is, one of his teachers noticed his incredible talent for translating his inner visions into visual imagery.

Six decades later, after traveling the world as a practising Artist and international Art Educator, Bruce is living and painting at his studio, gallery and creativity centre in Ubud, Bali.

Bruce's paintings are becoming increasingly sought after and can be found in private collections in Australia, the United States, France and the United Kingdom.
