David Trace was born in Cardiff in February 1937, and died in London in January 2006. He was a painter, sculpter and photographer, a brother, uncle and friend to many. He is very sadly missed and fondly remembered. Here we can share and enjoy memories, recollecting his life and work in its many aspects.

A Boy in 100,000
There was an article on the front page of the South Wales Echo on Wednesday 14th February, 1951: "David Trace, a young Cardiff schoolboy, is a boy in 100,000. David, aged 14, lives at 36 Colum Road, Cardiff, and he won first prize of £40 out of 100,000 entries in a painting competition organised by R.K.O. Pictures, Ltd. A pupil of Canton High School for Boys, David received his cheque from the Lord Mayor of Cardiff (Alderman George Williams) at the city hall today." Many thanks to Gwyneth Trace, David's sister in-law, for getting this from the newspaper and circulating photocopies around the family.
