Author of "Sketching Wild Birds"
Trevor combines a career in wildlife conservation with his passion for wildlife art. He has been painting for 25 years, working from life whenever possible; the British countryside and its wildlife providing the inspiration for his work.
He considers himself fortunate that his work puts him in daily contact with the subjects he chooses to sketch and paint.
Trevor’s approach to landscape and wildlife subjects relies less upon detail, concentrating more on atmosphere and an emotional reaction to his subjects.
He paints primarily in watercolour, capitalising upon the mediums ability to capture mood and delicacy within a subject, but also enjoys the more tactile feel of oil paint, which lends itself to certain subjects.
His sketchbooks form the basis for his finished paintings, they represent many years of watching and recording in the field, enabling Trevor to amass a wealth of first hand observations and reference material. This he uses as the basis and inspiration for his artwork.
Trevor is one of a small number of artists who specialises in British wildlife, notably birds. He enjoys travelling around the British Isles in search of the great richness of wildlife to be found, from the Farne Islands to the Outer Hebrides, Pembrokeshire to Norfolk and the South coast of England. Trevor has also spent a lot of time sketching around his home county of Worcestershire, citing many of his fondest wildlife encounters from local sites.
For the last ten years Trevor has taught bird and landscape painting from The Gallery at Bevere, Nature in Art and The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge. He has exhibited his work at all three venues and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, together with numerous occasions with The Wildlife Art Society in London, Bristol and in Kent.
