Trai is, without doubt, an incredibly talented and adventurous artist being able to master both the humorous and the serious subject with equal perfection.
We are delighted that Trai was able to take on commisions of amphibian and reptile species exclusively for British Wildlife Gifts.
The Dorset countryside and coast form the backdrop to many of Trai’s paintings as do well known landmarks, for example, the Square and Compass. These scenes have a slightly eccentric population, ranging from naked vicars and policemen to distraught children and affectionate retired couples. What they have in common is that as well as finding humour in her character’s predicaments Trai explores relationships and unlikely juxtapositions in a way that is almost a playful reference to the Surrealists who painted in and around Swanage in the inter-war years.
You can see more of Trai's artwork here. You will be sure to have a good giggle at her humorous seaside collection so do take a peep!
