Trevor Downes.

I have worked full time in the advertising industry for over 50 years ... from message boy to operating my own advertising design and finished art studio employing fifteen artists. The majority of my work was design and finished artwork for brochures, catalogues, packaging and press advertising in both colour and black and white. I have been fortunate to have worked in studios in Australia, Canada, U.S.A., England and Germany. I have used the skills I have gained on my travels to produce thousands of designs and pieces of finished artwork.

I attended my first life class drawing session at the St. Mary's "STUDIO" in 1958 as an eighteen year old and I am still enjoying life drawing to this day. I am a founding member and a life member of the Brisbane Art Directors Club which was started in 1974 and is still alive and well. I am an active member of The Half Dozen Group of Artists and the Royal Queensland Art Society.

My son and daughter own and run the business I started. I am now free to draw and paint to my heart's content. After all these years, nothing excites me more than a blank piece of paper or canvas AND the time to draw and paint.
