Born and raised in Caernarfon, Arthur was fortunate to have been taught in his early years by William Selwyn Jones whose work he much admires. This left a deep desire to paint but due to the necessities of bringing up a family and work , this was not fulfilled until he retired from full employment. Many of his paintings are from scenes from his local area which he has walked extensively throughout his adult life.

His paintings of his hometown intentionally have a childlike perspective as they are painted from cherished childhood memories.
