Trevor C. Wells


Trevor C. Wells was born on 1 November 1956 in Portsmouth. He broke his neck while playing rugby and was left paralyzed from his neck down. He stayed in the hospital for seven months. On leaving hospital in 1981, he went to live in a “Young Disabled Unit”, which is where he was encouraged to paint with his mouth. In the same year, he was granted a scholarship by the Association. In 1987 he became a Full Member, which gave him the opportunity for a completely new carrier as a mouth painter. In 1990, Trevor C. Wells left the “Young Disabled Unit” and moved to Chesham in Buckinghamshire.

In 2000 he participated in the Convention of Delegates in Sydney, where he had the great honour to be elected to the Board of the Association. Trevor C. Well’s favourites subjects are landscapes, which he paints in acrylic most of the time. His precise observation of nature – he often paints from photographs – makes his paintings particularly attractive. Particularly the winter landscapes, which is among the favourite subjects of Trevor C. Wells, are marked by masterly colouristic effects. He has had the opportunity to present his numerous works at solo and group exhibitions all over the world.
