Trevor Sutton lives and works in London. He went to art school in the 1960’s, graduating with a post-graduate diploma in 1972. He has from the outset, remained a non-figurative painter and printmaker. In addition to working in London he has taken up many residencies and fellowships abroad, most recently in France and Ireland.
