Born in Edinburgh in 1920, Les Drummond served in the Royal Air Force during World War II. His love for art led him to study Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art from 1950 to 54 and at L’École des Beaux-Arts in 1955. After living in London, he returned to Edinburgh to continue painting until he became an art teacher with Lothian Region from 1965 to 85. During this time he produced numerous paintings of landscapes and mythical themes with poetic figures, birds, animals and horses. Although he was principally a painter, Drummond worked with metal as a sculptor in the 1970s and 1980s. He also wrote poetry throughout his career, which his wife published as "Paradise Glimpsed" after his death in 1997.
