Welch was born and raised in rural Merrimack County, New Hampshire, in the small town of Epsom. The youngest of six boys, Welch began painting seriously at the age of 12 and studied the works of Andrew Wyeth.

At the age of 13 he did an apprenticeship with the artist Melvin Bolden. Bolden himself was a student of Norman Rockwell.

At the age of 15, Welch began studying independently from the collections of the Currier Museum of Art, the Fogg Museum at Harvard, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the National Art Gallery, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Vatican in Rome.

In 2015 Welch toured over 40 countries – including Cambodia, Colombia, Indonesia and Egypt – and recalled his experiences in the form of drawings and paintings.

After his travels, Welch moved to Southern California and founded an art studio in North Park, San Diego.

In 2018 Welch had his first major solo exhibition “Urban Archaic” in downtown Paso Robles. This exhibition was sold out in the first four hours. His art now appears on numerous wine labels, album covers, murals and magazines. Welch’s new paintings are sold exclusively through Farron Elizabeth in Atascadero, although he currently has a residence in the Brecon Estate.

“We have over 15 original paintings from his Resilient series,” said Walker, “as well as his Transcendence series for sale in the boutique for between $ 150 and $ 300. Welch also brought new paintings with them this week. “
