Trey Coppland is a self-taught artist who has over twenty years of self-employed experience in the Midwest (Champaign, IL) and in the Southwest (San Antonio, TX). The name of his studio is “Trey Coppland Art and Design.” Trey creates custom art pieces for clients across the U.S. and Mexico.

After high school graduation, Trey moved to Texas where he worked with several art galleries and developed a large clientele. He created a series of paintings for business owners and community organizations as well as painting custom pieces for homeowners. He also donated paintings to AIDS organizations in San Antonio. Trey spent two years exploring watercolors before learning EBRU (the Turkish art of marbling). He presently paints abstract acrylics in bold colors on large platforms. His paintings fall into an abstract impressionism category.

Art and Design, 1988 – present Education School of Art and Design Trey Coppland – Life is a learning a process. You learn from your mistakes. If you don’t recognize your mistakes, you cannot learn from them. Art comes from your Soul; it’s a gift. You don’t acquire your natural gifts in school, but you may master them there. Experienced artists can help you improve your technique, expose you to different artists, and encourage you to become the best artist which you can be. Hopefully, the older you are, the more wisdom you will acquire. And with wisdom, you will master your gift of life. Art is Art. My recent activities include observing people and how they interact in society. Also, I study every art book which I enjoy. You should never stop learning. If you stop learning, you may stop creating. I read in one of my art books (can’t find it now) that the only way an artist can fail is to stop. Activities and Societies: Every Art Book – You never stop learning, if you stop learning you stop creating ….

As a self-taught and self-employed artist, I have over 20 years of experience working in the arts, 20 years in the Southwest (San Antonio, TX) and four years in the Midwest (Champaign, IL). The name of my studio is “Trey Coppland Art and Design,” and I create custom art pieces for clients across the US and Mexico.

My art is abstract with a modern industrial emphasis, and I specialize in custom works of art. I like to use bold bright colors on a large scale platform. As a minimalist, I like wide open spaces, clean lines. In my opinion, that old saying “Less is More” happens to be true. Just look at loft and warehouse designs–a focus in today’s urban living.

I have a passion for a broad spectrum  of art and design, and collect Street Art, Graffiti Art, Photography and Digital Art.
