Trevor Osbourne – demonstration 21 June 2019
Trevor was born in Essex, but moved to Staffordshire when he was ten. At the age of sixteen, while studying at the Stanfield Technical School, he won the National English School Portrait Competition. He was admitted one year early to the North Staffordshire Polytechnic, where he studied Graphic Design. He has subsequently completed degrees in Theology and Education.
Trevor now lives on the Isle of Wight. He is fascinated by light and colour and has recently been studying the relationship between texture and colour in pastel and watercolour. His subjects include figure work and portraiture as well as light on water and the marine environment. In his recent work he has studied the relationship between people and animals who work together in the Suffolk landscape. Trevor’s work has been sold all over the world, including in the UK, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and the USA.
