Trevor Waugh

Born in London in 1952 Trevor studied at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1970 to 1974, amongst his tutors were Sir William Coldstream and David Hockney. He graduated with a BA in Fine Arts and then went on to study illustration under Ernest Jones at Croydon College of Art gaining a distinction. Obviously a talented young man he then spent 9 years working as freelance illustrator for Penguin, Heineman, Cassell, Collins and the BBC returning to Fine Art in 1988 when he moved to the Cotswolds.

Alison and Trevor first met in 1995 when he was tutoring an art group in Cornwall He had just returned from a very exciting trip to the USA and had travel in his bones. He took the Middle East straightaway and was out painting on his first morning in Dubai. These early paintings focused on the amazing variation to the light values through the day. Many visits have ensued since all producing an abundance of sketches watercolours and oils and more recently books.

Trevor has a strong following both here and in the UK his peregrinations around the world have included Morocco, Turkey, Venice, Egypt, Florence, Oman and India. He always finds time to pass his knowledge and skill on to others and has produced a number of books and videos on the art of sketching drawing and painting. Never far from his guitar or his sketch books, Trevor is a man who relishes in all things visual and stimulating. Now based in a wonderful new studio with ecclesiastical associations Trevor has a new base from which to work but there is always a trip in the offing
