​​David Bennett was born in 1969 and grew up in Doncaster. From an early age he naturally took to painting and drawing, animals and birds being a recurring theme. These interests grew and continued beyond school to a degree in graphics and illustration at Leeds, followed by a masters degree in natural history illustration at the Royal College of Art in London. Through much field sketching and painting his lively representational and intimately observed work has earned him many prestigious awards and placements on conservation projects in Alaska, Extremadura in Spain, Ireland, Scotland and the New Forest.
