Born in Newtownards in 1923, Turner began his career in the arts as an art/music specialist in the Boy's Model School, Belfast (1947–1950). He later designed sets in the art department of Stranmillis College (1950–1982) and for the Grand Opera House, the Group Theatre and the Patricia Mulholland Irish Ballet Company. In 1966 he founded a school of arts in Achill, such was his enthusiasm for the integration of arts and general education. He exhibited at the RUA from 1944 to 1980, with many of his works depicting scenes in the west of Ireland.
