Essex Tyler was born in Newlyn. He spent several years as a fisherman before taking a course at Falmouth Marine School, funding his studies by making and selling raku pottery.
Today his own painting and ceramics, and work by other artists, can be seen at the Tyler Gallery in Mousehole. Alongside his identity as an artist, he is a keen sailor and a highly talented surfer. 'Essex Tyler : Riding the Wave', a 2016 publication by surfer Sam Bleakley, is a celebration of Tyler's surfing skill and artistic talent.
