Waddington was born in Buckinghamshire, and moved with his family to Cornwall in 1971. His foundation work in art was at the Falmouth College of Art (1978-9) and his degree from Dyfed College of Art.
He taught O and A level art in Braintree, Essex and worked on Roman and Iron Age archeological sites before moving back to Cornwall in 1983. Since that time he has exhibited widely and become well know for his paintings and woodcuts often employing a favoured motif, the crow. He also creates sculptures from found objects.
