Jack Firth was born on May 21, 1917 in Edinburgh, and attended the Edinburgh College of Art from 1935 to 1939. He was very engaged in art education and taught art at schools as well as working as a part-time lecturer at ECA from 1955 to 1970. His works have been exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Torrance Gallery and the Open Eye Gallery amongst others.

Jack Firth lived in Edinburgh for most of his life and was involved in the local art community, which culminated in his election to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in 1961. He painted various natural scenes in Scotland, in addition to capturing the beautiful light in the French countryside. He passed away in September 2010.
