Bruce said his design was influenced by the Norfolk Broads.

With a degree in painting from Ravensbourne College of Art and Design in Kent, he then went straight on to teaching. Bruce is currently teaching at a high school part-time and is renovating a house in France, as well as doing some of his own art. He was also the designer of the UK’s very first £2 coin.
