David M. Trubshaw: Exhibitions David Trubshaw was born in England and moved to the Algarve, Portugal in 2004. He started to paint again, after many years and following private tuition under the expert eyes and professional guidance of two German artists, has now had several exhibitions in Portugal and Germany.

He paints both abstract and landscape, mainly in acrylic and has also started to design and produce his own hand-made prints, using oil and mixed media.
Trees and leaf structures feature in many of his paintings and prints and he admits he is "Intrigued by trees, their shapes, textures and leaf patterns and how they blend, mould and merge with the landscape. Even dead plants and fallen leaves have a unique structure and design." Perhaps this has something to do with his early ancestors whose name
"Trobeshawe" has been traced to Saxon times and comes from the Saxon words "trobe" (tree) and "shawe" (shade.)

He also writes poetry, especially Haiku, the Japanese style, which aims to capture, in three short lines, a feeling and evoke images of nature. He has recently published a book of his paintings and poems - "Haiku for You. A Celebration of the Four Seasons".
