Stubley, Trevor HonRP RBA RWS

Elected to RSW 1990

Artists Statement

I trained at Edinburgh College of Art under William Gillies, William MacTaggart, Robin Phillipson et al. As a result of that training I have always thought of myself as belonging to the Scottish School of Painting even though I am a Yorkshireman by birth and domicile. I am a late developer, my paintings have become more interesting as time has gone on.
