Jack Pender was born in Mousehole, Cornwall where his family had lived for centuries. His grandfather, Will George, was a fisherman and a Primitive painter. Pender began his formal art training at Penzance School of Art but this was curtailed by the outbreak of the Second World War. He served in the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, was evacuated from Dunkirk and afterwards served in North Africa and Italy where he was twice wounded in action. He eventually ended his war with British forces in Greece, where he was able to study at the Athens School of Art. After demobilisation he continued his artistic training at Exeter School of Art and the West of England College of Art at Bristol. Thereafter he taught at Plymouth Art School and gave courses at Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth.
