Using oils on canvas Trevor meticulously records unrepeatable moments in the natural world, with precision and detail. His paintings offer the viewer a chance to experience the abundance and drama of the coast, celebrating the beauty of its impermanence, in the ever changing environments revealed at low tide.

Trevor has many years experience as a professional illustrator designing and painting book jackets for London publishers. His most notable works include covers for the James Bond spy novels and science fiction jackets for Ray Bradbury. He now pursues his personal work, fulfilling his passion for painting marine landscapes across the South Coast.

Born in Brighton with many childhood memories of visits to Black Rock, looking down into rock pools and seeing the sea life trapped by the tide while waiting for release on the incoming tide, governed by the effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the moons rotation of the earth, a sense of wonder that has stayed with him in his work today.
