David Lloyd Glover

Victoria, British Columbia is the 1949 birthplace of David Lloyd Glover.   Located on Vancouver Island, this typically British city with its famous English-style gardens formed the earliest influence on Glover’s art.  Mr. Glover grew up on the 600-acre estate known as Hatley Castle, it’s formal European and Japanese gardens, and country and ocean-side setting gave him a deep appreciation of nature’s beauty.  King George V visited the stone castle in 1939 that was so impressed with its grandeur that he decided it was to become the new home of King Edward VIII after his abdication from the British throne.  A Japanese torpedo hit the beach in 1941 and forever changed his Royal plans.
