His first art teacher at Bedfont school was the artist and poet Victor West. At Hampton School he was taught by Vic Mackenzie, a skilled artist and craftsman with a passion for the shipyard paintings of Stanley Spencer. While still at Hampton he was a weekend student at Ealing Art School under John Drew. After A-levels he became a full-time student at Twickenham Art College, achieving the Intermediate Arts & Crafts Diploma in 1964 and graduating with the National Diploma in Design in 1966. At Twickenham David was taught by Osmund Caine, himself a Spencer admirer and a designer of stained glass with work in churches worldwide. Other tutors included the sculptor Sidney Harpley R.A.; Stan Smith NEAC ARWS; Euan Jennings R.E.; Mary Caine; Bernard Blatch and the war artist Malvina Cheek.

David began exhibiting in 1963 while still at art school and has been regularly shown in London and provincial galleries. An early work was published by Rosenstiels in 1969.
