1908 – 1987

Born in South East London, Sidney studied at the Camberwell School of Art and the Bolts Court School of Art and Engraving.
He was appointed staff artist and later Art Editor of the Financial Times which he remained until retirement. He also illustrated books and produced graphics for television.

During his time at the Financial Times he also painted in watercolour and many of his works were exhibited at the Royal Institute, Guildhall, City of London and other London Exhibitions.

He retired to Selworthy and developed his watercolour techniques producing his signature landscapes of West Somerset as well as Cornwall and North Wales. He held annual selling exhibitions of his work, the popularity of his paintings producing such demand that in 1987 it became necessary to sell them by auction. In 1983 Cavendish Collection published the first of his fine art limited edition prints.
