Born in Dorking, Surrey, Bob studied graphic design at Kingston School of Art before moving to St Ives, Cornwall in 1965. He founded (along with his first wife Jenny DEVEREUX) the Salt House Gallery in St Ives in 1979, where both artists showed their own work in addition to giving many aspiring and well-known artists the opportunity to hold solo exhibitions. 

Bob is also a performance poet, raconteur, musician and librettist, and with his second wife Pauline LIU-DEVEREUX continues to actively support the creative arts in West Cornwall. His work has been exhibited at Rainyday Gallery, Penzance.
