Due to financial issues in the family, Turner’s father had sent him to his uncle, Joseph Mallord William.

After few years, Turner’s dad had started selling the drawings completed by Turner for few shillings in his barber shop. By 1789, Turner got enrolled in Royal Academy of Arts. Soon after that, he started and completed several water colour paintings which he later exhibited and become popular among the visitors.
By 1794, Turner’s designs were published in Copper plate magazine and Pocket magazine. In 1799, he became an associate of Royal Academy of Arts and he progressed further as a full time academician by 1802.
