Description

The Goldfish 1000 PC Holdson Jigsaw Puzzle

The Goldfish Holdson Jigsaw Puzzle is from the “Rag and Bone” Collection

The call of Rag n’ Bone! was once a familiar cry throughout towns and villages across Britian, quickly accompanied by the clip clop of hooves. These detailed paintings showcase the wonders of the Rag n’ Bone trade.

The Artist:  Trevor Mitchell

After leaving Bradford Art College in 1979, with a  Diploma in Art & Design, Trevor began his career as a trainee art director at a London Advertising Agency.

Those were the days before computer graphics and Trevor was delighted to be drawing for a living, producing magic marker visuals of advertisements and packaging for a variety of big brands and household names.  A few years later he returned to his native West Yorkshire and in 1986 was made redundant, when the advertising agency he was working for went into liquidation.

This was the moment that Trevor’s life changed and  he became a freelance artist.  He started with advertising work from contracts he had made while employed in the industry, but it was illustrating for greeting card publishers that rekindled his childhood love of painting.

Although he kept up with the times by acquiring computer skills and an Apple Mac, it became his burning ambition to earn a living from full time painting.  This is not easily achieved, especially for someone with a family to support and it took years of hard work and persistence  to climb the ladder of recognition.

Today, Trevor’s paintings can be found reproduced on prints, cards, Jigsaw Puzzle and collector plates all over the world.  His favourite subjects always recreate the past on canvas, reflecting his interest in steam and vintage vehicles and his love of the countryside.

He is well known for his nostalgic farming scenes, many of which are set in the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire where Trevor and his wife took their two children on many holidays and days out.
