Patrick Haughton was born in Devonport in 1942. He grew up and was educated in North Devon, moving to Exeter to study architecture in 1960. In 1962 he abandoned architecture to enrol at Exeter College of Art under Clifford Fishwick, subsequently transferring to the West of England College of Art in Bristol where he studied painting and sculpture. Paul Feiler was head of painting at that time and visitors included William Scott and Karl Weschke.
Since retiring from teaching in 1995 (his last post was as Head of Kennall Vale School near Truro), he has worked full time as a painter. He was elected a full member of Newlyn Society of Artists in 1996 and is also an Associate Member of The Penwith Society of Arts. He lives and works in Penryn, overlooking the estuary of the River Fal in Cornwall, also spending prolonged periods of time in Brittany.
