He was married to the artist Claudia Williams, his brother being the painter Arthur Pritchard. Studied at Normal College, Bangor, and Birmingham College of Art, 1960–4, where he did little painting, concentrating on ceramics and weaving. Held several teaching posts, latterly at Friars’ School, Bangor, settling at Anglesey, an area of key importance to his painting. Decided to become a full-time artist in 1973, settling near the border with England, commissioned work including some for British Army in Belfast. In 1978 an East Midlands Arts Association bursary funded a record of National Trust properties in the St Davids area of Pembrokeshire.
