Douglas Charles Selway was born in Essex in 1950, son of Sidney Douglas Selway (22 December 1915-17 April 2003) and his wife Kathleen Hilda née Shakespeare (1923-1989), who married in Essex in 1947. Douglas studied at Westminster Kingsway College in London and was an art tutor in London and a freelance artist since early 1990 and full-time professional artist from 2001, mostly prop-making a wide range of community arts such as carnival, theatre, and puppet projects, also studio-based teaching. Douglas Selway married at Islington, London in 2000, Susi Hines, a jewellery designer, and they lived at Denman House, California Road, Manningtree, Essex. They later lived in an 18th Century town house in a pretty Suffolk village and converted the garage space for Doug's studio which is full of extraordinary surreal sculptures with words and sketches scrawled on the walls and ceilings.
