David Mitchell was born in London in 1930 and began making visual art in his 70s. Most of his working life was concerned with music, but on his retirement he trained as a printmaker, producing prints, drawings and artists’ books. For the past 50 years, he has lived between London and Norfolk and his images often refer to observations of the East Anglian landscape – Thetford Forest; the Suffolk coast; the borders between field and forest, sea and shore.
His work is represented in private collections in France, Sweden, the Netherlands, the USA, New Zealand and Japan as well as Great Britain. Further examples are to be seen at the Pentreath & Hall Gallery, London.
