Eldon Spence was born in Falmouth, Jamaica, on the 7th of August 1972. He always wanted to be an artist and his favourite subjects at school were art & painting, batik leatherwork, and screen printing. He later joined a group of artists led by Wilfred Black. By observing them, he developed his own style - and thus rightly describes himself as self-taught. He is also an acoomplished guitar player and singer, and can often be heard serenading the guests at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Montego Bay.
