Frank Heath's experience of 'plein air' painters in Brittany, where he went after leaving the Herkomer School of Painting, and their success at the Royal Academy exhibitions no doubt influenced his decision to come to Newlyn in 1901/1902 and to study under Stanhope Forbes. In 1905 his first painting was accepted at the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. He and his wife Jessica, also a painter, settled first at Polperro but later built their own house in Lamorna.
