The artist was born in West Newton, Massachusetts, and retained American citizenship throughout his life. He worked from the Meadow Studio in St Ives in the mid-1920s, and exhibited in all the local venues of the time.
In the 1929 St Ives Times, in reviewing the Lanham's Diamond Jubilee exhibition, mentioned 'it is recommended that the visitor should also visit Donald Angier's studio for unique decorative works'.
In passenger records of the ocean liners in the 1930s, his main occupation is listed as 'medical manufacturer' (Angier Chemical Co) which was the family business.
