Trevor Price was born in 1966 and grew up in Cornwall. He studied printmaking at Falmouth School of Art and Winchester School of Art during the 1980's. Having obtained a BA (Hons.) in Fine Art he then set up an etching studio in Southern Spain. On his return to England he was based in London for a short while before returning to Cornwall. Most of his recent figurative prints are dry-points, usually on zinc or Perspex. It is the love of the process and the opportunity to experiment that draw him to his chosen medium. His figurative work often shows a Cornish influence. Settings are mainly coastal but personal references are also evident, including reflections on his own life, obsessions and some complete fantasies. Prints by Trevor can be found in many collections throughout Europe and he has shown his prints at The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition, The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and Intaglio Printmakers.
