Born and bred in the black country, Trevor left Liverpool college of Art with a diploma in art and design and has spent most of his working life as a furniture and cabinetmaker in Birmingham. He had his own business making wooden Victorian toys and rocking horses which sold across the country including Harrods of London. In the last 15 years he has been teaching Art and Craft, working alongside Jason and Tony at a small private school. He has worked with children of all ages and has seen many students successfully through their GCSE exams and particularly enjoys the challenge of teaching teenagers with additional needs. Trevor's art room was always a haven for students looking for a safe place and someone who would listen and his contribution to the community and welfare of the students was considerable and greatly appreciated. Trevor enjoys playing live music and plays a variety of folk instruments in Bluegrass and Barn Dance bands and is currently teaching violin and music lessons. In his spare time Trevor makes automatons and folk fiddles as well as renovating and restoring old violins.
