 Notes about the artists:

Artists

Paul Trevillion – “The Master of Movement”

PAUL TREVILLION is recognised as the world’s No. 1 sports artist devoting a lifetime to the fine art of pen and ink.  With a highly successful artistic career spanning over 60 years –  TREVILLION is the creator of the cult classic ‘You Are The Ref’ and also brought comic art realism to Roy of the Rovers in the 1960’s. Trevillion’s extraordinary artistic talent was discovered and nurtured at a very young age. Encouraged by family and school teachers he pursued a ground breaking career working with the world’s greatest sports stars which has seen his original artwork published in Europe, USA, Australia, Japan and South Africa, and currently is on display in the FIFA Museum, Zurich and the National Football Museum, Manchester.

From the 1960’s onwards, Trevillion’s dynamic art featured in almost every national newspaper in the UK.   Trevillion devised and illustrated instructional based art for the Daily Mirror, Daily Express, The Sun, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Times, Sunday Times, Guardian and Observer.  A gifted artist and raconteur, Trevillion is available for interview

Trevillion’s motto to young aspiring artists:  “Follow your dream.  Never allow anyone  to say – you can’t achieve it.   You have to be the one who believes in YOU more than anyone else.”  www.paultrevillion.com

Sally Fisher

Sally trained in Fine Art at Amersham College of Art, Bucks. Born to artistic parents, she has worked all her life as a painter, illustrator and cartoonist. She has taught art since 1998 and is a qualified Adult Art Tutor. She taught first at Camden Working Men’s College, London, and Marlborough College Summer School and many other art institutes in London and Devon and now at The Phoenix Studios in Towersey near Thame.

She runs workshops and demonstrations in all media and specialises in Life Drawing. She has written eight articles published in ‘The Artist’, and a chapter on watercolour nudes in Harper Collins’ ‘Water Colour Problem Solver’. For Sally, painting and drawing is about energy, discovery, excitement response and a lot of risk taking.

Photographers

Vanessa Champion PhD

Curator, judge and professional commercial and portrait photographer, founder of PhotoAid Global Foundation and the Fine Art agency, ARGENTA Creative, Vanessa is a resident of Tring, but is often found with camera in hand stepping onto a plane somewhere. Her commercial and philanthropic work has taken her all over the world from India to Indonesia, Africa to Nepal.

Passionate about music, travel and documenting stories, her inspiration remains Cartier-Bresson and Jane Bown.

Vanessa also shoots and cuts film and is never happier than photographing performance, whether that’s on the theatrical stage or at an IT conference. Known for her black and white single light style, reminiscent of the Hollywood period she shoots actors and musicians in the studio and on location.

Former academic and gallery owner, Ness gives talks on her work in Africa and India and nurtures new talent where she can. 

Adriaan van Heerden

Adriaan is an award-winning international fine art photographer. His subjects include wildlife, landscapes, cityscapes, travel and portraits. His work has been exhibited in London, Barcelona, Kyoto and Singapore and his pictures held in private and corporate collections in the UK, USA and South Africa, as well his work appearing in numerous international newspapers and magazines. “It is in poetry that the Universe reveals itself to us at its most mysterious and beautiful. Living as we do in data-saturated societies with impossible standards of perfection, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that it is the absence of information that creates space for the imagination to play, and that the beauty of things is often revealed in their brokenness, fragility and imperfection. My artistic mission is to capture this poetic vision in the two dimensions of photographs I believe that poetry is all around us and we only need to tune in to the right frequency to appreciate the ephemeral, immense beauty of the Universe.” 

David Newton

David is a globe-trotting professional photographer and filmmaker, known for his love of the natural world. His camera will variously be trained on anything that catches his eye, from landscapes to wildlife, portraits to sport, travel, commercial and anything in between. He has had work exhibited in London and across Europe and his images are held in a variety of private collections.

I try to not get bogged down in the art of photography – I capture anything where I see beauty, whatever that may be and wherever in the world I am. I am continually amazed at the wonder of the world and my aim is to bring a little of that splendour I encounter, back to the rest of the world.”

Football Walk of Fame – new inductees

Jimmy Greaves and Denis Law among this year’s inductees at the celebrated Football Walk of Fame at the National Football Museum in Manchester in June 2017. We were lucky to be contracted to photograph the event, which was covered in the media. Each portrait of the chosen elite players is drawn by The Master of Movement Paul Trevillion. The whole concept of the Football Walk of Fame is the brainchild of musician and composer David Courtney. The Football Walk of Fame is there for everyone to enjoy, take yourself, your kids, your grand kids or your football team and enjoy the Walk of Fame at the National Football Museum.
