Lucy Creed Bryn Dineen Trevor Parsons
Poet and Painter was founded in 2015 by artist Lucy Creed, with contributing poet Trevor Parsons, and they were joined in 2017 by artist Bryn Dineen.
Lucy and Bryn met at Winchester School of Art over 25 years ago, and apart from a great friendship, they have always shared a delight in twisting words and pictures to create something new, irreverent, and ideally, snortingly funny. The output of laughter from the studio since Bryn joined in 2017 has literally tripled (although the productivity has arguably halved.)
Lucy Creed trained in Fine Art as a splashy painter, and has always been a voracious sketcher, documenting everything and everyone around her in her drawings. Lucy's artwork captures the subtleties of narrative and humour as she shares her love of the combination wordplay, imagery and colour, always pushing for something new.
Bryn Dineen joined the Poet and Painter studio in 2017, having been co-erced, cajoled and bribed by Lucy to become part of the creative team. Bryn originally trained as a sculptor, but she has always had an equal affinity with language and words. Known to her family as 'Pedantington Bear', she has a genuine fascination with vocabulary, grammar and word play.
has been writing poetry for over twenty years, his work is published in numerous popular anthologies
alongside poets like Roger McGough, Benjamin Zephaniah, and even Jonathan Swift. His writing covers a plethora of subjects, from dinosaurs and endangered species to searching for love on the internet.
In 2011 Trevor and Lucy released their first creative collaboration, the sell-out book ‘Hear Here!’, a collection of Trevor’s wonderful poems, with Lucy's lively illustrations. It was immediately clear the combination of Trevor's words and Lucy's drawing created something special, and so keen to give their creative collaboration the chance to shine beyond the bookshelf, in 2015 they launched Poet and Painter.
