About The Artist

Trevor Mitchell - Biography

After attending Bradford Art College, Trevor began his career as an art director at a London advertising agency in 1979. After a few years he returned to his native West Yorkshire and went freelance in 1986. Illustrating for greeting card publishers rekindled his childhood love of painting and he was encouraged by finding a market for his paintings among the publishers of art prints and jigsaw puzzles.

Today, Trevor’s art work can be found on a range of products across the world. Jigsaw puzzles, cards, calendars, metal signs and now wall murals reflect his enthusiasm for steam and vintage vehicles and his love of the British countryside. He delights in recreating the past on canvas through careful research and is well known for his nostalgic, authentic scenes depicting farming, rural and family life.

In August 2021 he did a Q&A for Gibsons in which he goes into his background in more depth, as well as his work on their 4 puzzle box sets. If you would like to read it, here is a link:
