Monte Trevor Carlton was born in 1972 in Olympia, Washington State. Although Carlton took up painting in high school, the first artistic passion that Trevor Carlton embraced was acting. He decided to forgo an art scholarship in favor of attending a dramatic arts scholarship at Skagit Valley College.
Trevor Carlton next attended the Lee Strasberg Acting Workshop. The following year Trevor Carlton relocated to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Amidst the chaos of auditions and callbacks, Trevor paid the bills by working in a custom furniture store, specializing in antiquing and faux finish designs.
It was here that a style was born. Using reclaimed lumber as his "canvas", Trevor Carlton started painting images of vintage Americana with subjects ranging from pop icon celebrity to the hey day of jazz.
After numerous gallery shows in Los Angeles and private commissions Trevor Carlton has now combined his unique style to that most American of symbols, MICKEY MOUSE. Along with a series of classic lobby card paintings, Trevor Carlton has also created a performance piece that has him painting a large canvas of our favorite Disney characters in a matter of minutes.
