Douglas Ettridge was a leading aviation and motoring artist in oil and watercolour who worked in his native Britain and the United States. Born in North London he left school at the age of sixteen and worked for a commercial artist while attending night school. In the 1950’s he became a prominent member of the newly formed Society of Aviation Artists, whose members held an annual show at the Guildhall, London. He was a member of the London Sketch Club and also exhibited with the Royal Society of Marine Artists. By the late 1950’s he had moved to the United States where he achieved considerable success as a painter of aircraft, ships and racing cars. He held an annual exhibition in Los Angeles for over fifty years and had studios for some years in Santa Barbara, California and at Worplesdon, Surrey. His work was acquired by many film stars including Frank Sinatra, Danny Kaye and John Travolta and for many important collections in America including the San Diego Aerospace Museum, The Museum of Flight, The American Hall of Aviation History, Brazilian Air Ministry and by several airlines.
