Bull was admitted to the Dublin Society's School in 1769, and studied there under Ennis. In 1777 he exhibited "Portraits in Hair" at the Society of Artists in William Street, and in 1780 "Miniatures in colour and hair." Not finding sufficient patronage in Dublin, he went to London and began to exhibit in the Royal Academy in 1794, when he contributed "a Portrait of Kemble" and six anonymous portraits. He was then living in Shepherd Street, Oxford Street, but next year moved to 101 Pall Mall, where he remained until 1806.
