Born at Helston, Cornwall, son of the painter Ralph Todd, from 1907 he studied with Stanhope Forbes at Newlyn. After serving in the Army during World War I and first showing at the RA in 1918, from 1920–1 studied under Henry Tonks at the Slade School of Fine Art, for two years after that studying and working on the continent.
