Kyffin Williams was born in Anglesey in 1918. After leaving Shrewsbury School he was then articled to a firm of land agents in Pwllheli until 1938, when he joined the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, but was discharged in 1941 on account of his epilepsy. On the advice of a doctor he sought a new career in art attending the Slade school of art from 1941-1944. Kyffin went on to spend many years teaching art part-time at Highgate School in London. He used the rest of each week to focus on his own painting, and while his native Wales was a significant source of subject matter throughout his career, he also made painting trips abroad, most notably to Patagonia in 1968 as a Winston Churchill Fellow. In 1973 he returned to his beloved Wales and settled back on Anglesey in a house overlooking the Menai Strait, which remained his home for the rest of his life.
