"Life as seen by Trev"
As a mature art student, I trained and then practised as a computer character animator, mainly working on children's TV series in London and Bristol.
Nowadays I draw and paint my daily observations as I travel around Bristol and the surrounding areas in my free time.
I'm constantly experimenting with my interpretations of the local characters as I work in my sketchbooks.
My drawing collection is fast becoming a useful reference for my art projects.
I am a big fan of the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Honoré Daumier who both used print, caricature
and painting to pass comment on the social and political life in 19th century France.
For the last several years I have spent a lot my free time oil painting. Many thanks to the help and advice from local artists and good friends Stephen Clifton and Sue Gilmore Powell. I also find oil pastels are a very expressive and immediate medium
that are fun to work with.
