SCOTT TREVELYAN IS A VISUAL ARTIST PRACTICING AND RESIDING ON THE NORTH COAST NSW.

He completed a degree in Visual Arts at Southern Cross University, Lismore NSW. His favourite medium to work with is print where he uses various printmaking techniques as a cathartic tool to overcome life-threatening injuries sustained in a traumatic motorcycle accident in 2002. Scott currently runs art therapy classes for Acquired Brain Injury survivors at his wheelchair-friendly, purpose built studio, ‘Willowbank Studio’ at Alstonvale, NSW and has been doing so since 1986. He is currently studying an Advanced Diploma of Fine Arts at Lismore TAFE.

Art institutions such as the State Library of Queensland, Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon Trust and numerous international collectors have acquired Scott’s artwork. His artwork has been commissioned alongside some of Australia’s finest printmakers and he has exhibited in various Australian, Asian and European Art Awards.

Scott’s current body of work portrays the increasing demands that have been thrust upon the honeybee, Apis mellifera, for survival.
