A graduate of Northern Illinois University with a B.A. in Communications, the self-taught painter’s interest in abstract expressionists, including Clyfford Still and Carmen Herrera, carries over into his art, rendered in acrylics. “My work is about exploring the relationship between color story, composition and texture and finding ways to create pieces that are restrained but still interesting, subtle but also impactful,” says Trotter, who also draws inspiration from his international travels and architecture and design in equal measure. “My paintings lend themselves very well to interiors, which is no accident. I’m motivated by the idea of creating pieces that people can immediately see themselves living with forever.” A former celebrity publicist and founder of fashion and lifestyle publicity firm Trotter Public Relations, Trotter has an extensive background in marketing and branding.
