Richard Short's grandfather, John Tregerthen Short, was a master mariner who had his own navigation school in St Ives. Richard had moved to Cardiff by 1881, working as a ship broker's agent. But by 1901 he had established himself as an artist specialising in maritime scenes. From 1891 he lived at 22 The Walk, Cardiff. The Museum of Wales holds five of his paintings.
