"I create work based on integrity and craftsmanship. Each piece is an original, printed by hand, onto quality materials with the utmost of care."
After completing his Diploma in Art and Design at Falmouth School of Art, he studied Graphic Fine Art at Kent Institute of Art and Design - Canterbury, gaining a First class honours degree. This multidisciplinary course gave him a grounding in many forms of Fine Art printmaking, including artists books and printed objects.
He taught Fine Art full time since completing his PGCE in 2000. He is currently teaching Fine Art A Level at Truro College. He is fortunate enough to work with exciting, creative and enthusiastic young people every day and the challenge of meeting their needs inspires his daily practice.
Tristan has taken part in many group exhibitions, exhibiting at Wimbledon Arts Center, Cork Street, Canterbury Art Gallery and Museum, The Artists Book Fair - London, Bucca Art Gallery - Newlyn and many more. Now, he is seeking positive and friendly representation from a range of South West Galleries for his newest body of work.
