David B Midgley was born and raised in Blackpool; he studied at the Blackpool Technical College & School of Art, where he gained his National Diploma in Design.

He worked in several Manchester advertising agencies before joining the CWS as an exhibition designer. After moving to Manchester he became a freelance graphic designer for many years (trading as David Brian), producing work for London and Manchester agencies, printers and publishers; this was mainly in the fields of calligraphy, cartoons and children's book illustration where he often created page layouts and ideas to help other artists to follow through to completion.

Since returning to the Fylde coast David has been concentrating on a series of depictions of 'Bygone Blackpool', taken from sketches he made as a student. He also enjoys abstract painting, his works showing the far reaches of his imagination and his love of colour.
