The artist was principal of Falmouth School of Art from c1921-c1940, having studied art at the Royal College of Art in South Kensington.
At Falmouth he taught design and pattern-making as well as painting. Some of his designs were used by his wife (E A SEAWARD) who taught leather-work and the use of pewter to over-lay caskets, small boxes and writing cases. Primarily Seaward is remembered for his pure rich watercolour technique, and at the 150th Anniversary Exhibition of the RCPS a group of his watercolours, etchings and pen & ink sketches were shown, together with examples of leatherwork produced at the School.
