Hilary Comeau was of French Canadian stock, but spent most of his life in England. A prizewinner at the Slade, he was noted for his meticulous drawings of thistles and shells. He was the first fulltime art teacher at Denstone College, Staffordshire, and later taught at the Girls' High School in Truro.
His first visit to Cornwall was to a holiday cottage in Boscastle. Later he settled in Truro.
