Edward Seago was born in Norwich. He was essentially a self-taught artist although he did receive advice from Alfred Munnings and Bertram Priestman. He painted landscapes and seascapes as well as garden scenes and portraits.As a young man he joined Bevin's Travelling circus, and later during the second world war, the Royal Engineers. He continued painting in the army and became immensely popular. Such was his popularity that those who wished to buy one of his paintings had to queue at his various annual exhibitions around the world. The Queen Mother bought so many paintings that eventually Seago gave her two a year one on her birthday and the other at Christmas.
