Coventry was born in Scotland. He represented Glasgow School of Painting. Coventry was an A.R.S.A - Associate of Royal Scottish Academy and a member of the R.S.W. - Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour. His oeuvre oscillated between marine painting from the regions of Scotland and Wales. He did not, however, refrain from incorporating oriental themes in his paintings.
