Rolf Harris, artist, musician, singer, TV presenter and one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers was born in Perth Western Australia.  He has been awarded the CBE, is a member of the Order of Australia and has won many honours for his work in the entertainment industry.

He has had chart topping hits, written best selling books and has been voted the best entertainer ever, at Glastonbury.  His paintings have been exhibited in London’s National Gallery and he is an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists.

His Animal Hospital series was five times winner of the National Television Awards.  Currently he presents BBC TV shows Rolf Harris’s Star Portraits and Rolf on Art, which made TV history when it gained the highest ever ratings for an art programme.  His portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth ll, to celebrate her 80th birthday, was the subject of a programme The Queen, by Rolf, which was screened to a record breaking viewing audience on BBC One in 2006.

Rolf is the first artist to be commissioned by the Royal Australian Mint to design the new commemorative one dollar silver kangaroo coin.  When it was launched, special editions of the coin sold out immediately.

In 2007 a documentary, A Lifetime in Paint, about Rolf’s life as an artist, was screened on BBC One. Other projects included a third series of Star Portraits, a Rolf on Art special, Rolf on Lowry for BBC One and Saving Planet Earth Finale to raise funds for BBC Wildlife Fund. A Rolf on Art special about the life and work of Beatrix Potter was screened in the New Year holiday.

Rolf’s latest DVD Rolf Live! Features Rolf and his musicians performing his greatest hits in front of a studio audience.
