The son of an illustrator, Lez Bramwell was born in Birmingham. He first moved to Cornwall in the 1940s and was professionally active in Penzance in the 1970s and 80s. He was educated in Camborne, Harrow and Birmingham. Influenced by the Newlyn School, he painted in a traditional style, placing his subjects in settings reminiscent of the Victorian era. His wife, Audrey Iris (nee Audrey HARPER) was also a painter. The couple had one son. His work, which included seascapes and landscapes, was sold throughout the UK and abroad. Bramwell was also a highly successful art tutor and writer of short stories and poems.
