Trevor V. Swanson lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife Jennifer and two children, Connor and Devon. Trevor began painting professionally in 1989 and has worked hard to establish a strong reputation among collectors and galleries around the country and world. Coming from a long line of talented artists, Trevor learned an appreciation for realism, detail and the complexities of value systems essential to any fine artwork. He has also mastered the patience needed to make each painting something truly special.
Throughout his life, Trevor has enjoyed spending as much time as possible outdoors. He has traveled throughout the United States, as well as Canada, Africa and Spain. From his travels he has developed a great respect and enthusiasm for all aspects of nature, which he now conveys through his art. Time spent in the field gives Trevor his keen insight into the precise details of the animals and their environments, which he then transfers to the canvas while remaining true to the fundamentals of artistic realism.
