Trey Oliver Bio

Noah Price Oliver, III or “Trey” started his art venture Noah’s Art Driftwood Décor & More late in life at age 53.  It began and grew from his admiration of driftwood found on isolated beaches. Delving into mixed media, 3D, painting nautical scenes on driftwood, acrylic and some oil paintings on canvas Trey has sold over 200 pieces of art in the past six years. Trey has taken classes for 18 months under Devlin Wilson and has taken classes from Cat Pope and Ben Kaiser.

Now a member of the Mobilia Art Center, formerly the old Cathedral Square Art Gallery Trey is currently hosting monthly Art Clinics with guest speakers and performers sharing their knowledge as two to three visual artists paint live on stage as a back drop.

His day job as Warden of Metro Jail carries a fair amount of stress and tension.  “Art is how I take the edge off” he joked. “Besides my golf swing really sucks!”
