Trish Mitchell was born in 1970 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Trish feels extremely fortunate to be able to pursue a career in fine art that allows her to visually communicate her deep love of beauty and stillness to the world. Her traditional style has been strongly influenced by the old masters, the late nineteenth century classical atelier painters and several contemporary realists. Among these William Adolphe Bouguereau, Pierre-Auguste Cot and John Singer Sargent, and contemporary traditional artists Douglas Flynt, Michael Klein and Katie G. Whipple have been particularly inspirational.
She has aligned herself with the new movement that is currently sweeping across the world of artists working in classical painting methods and practices, and is currently dedicating herself to the study of classical drawing and painting methods under realist artist and instructor Douglas Flynt in the USA. She has also been fortunate enough to attend workshops with Daniel J. Keys in San Francisco and most recently, with Katie G. Whipple in New York.
Trish’s art is an invitation into her world where beauty and introversion are celebrated, quiet times cherished and reminders of timeless grace and elegance surround us. She delights in the magic inherent in life and places great value on depth and authenticity. A pluviophile and Francophile, her heart’s home is in Paris and she visits as often as she can.
A devoted wife and mother of four, Trish paints from her beautiful studio overlooking Table Mountain in Cape Town.
