Artist in oil, watercolour and pastel, Born in Congleton, Cheshire. Pass studied at Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, 1947-51 with Arthur Berry and Arnold Machin. He spent 1951-54 at the Royal Academy Schools under Henry Rushbury, William Dring and Gilbert Spencer. Pass went on to teach in Liverpool, Manchester, Carlisle and Birmingham Colleges of Art.

Pass described his work as 'from 1957-69 I was concerned with landscape in a semi-figurative way. From 1969 onwards I was concerned with the transfiguration of landscape being motivated by the resurrection, with vast numbers of figures and black spaces with bands of gold.'

He took part in mixed shows at Drian Galleries, New Art Centre, John Whibley Gallery, Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield, the University of Keele and Gallery of Art, Lissone, Milan. Had a series of solo shows at Drian Galleries from 1957 and one at New Art Centre, 1962.
