Talbot Cox CAIB, FIB, AEP (Unisa) was a successful banker before embracing art as a profession. He is an established artist having had many exhibitions, live demonstrations and workshops. While self taught, he has painted with celebrated artists locally and abroad returning recently from a sabbatical in America where he painted with renowned USA portrait artists. His formal art training includes the Unisa certificated courses in drawing and two dimensional form. He is a past president of the Eastern Cape Watercolour Society.

Talbot is essentially a portrait artist but he also enjoys doing fine art in a variety of mediums. He is multi-talented: a classically trained musician having performed in philharmonic orchestras and an author.

Talbot and his wife, Elyse, renovated two historical cottages adjacent to each other on the magical cliffs of Schoenmakerskop overlooking the sea. They share Seashell Cottage with three dogs, a cat and a multitude of birds and Periwinkle Cottage is where Talbot has his studio and gallery.
