Lewis Mitchell was born in Penzance.
WMN in a review (2006) commented that 'He is self-taught, and his landscape paintings are pure colour with an eye for detail, with the paint carefully applied in an obsessive manner. His pictures are often fantastical, with ships, aeroplanes and balloons passing through the Cornish landscape.'
His work has been exhibited at a number of galleries in Cornwall and further afield. He was represented by David Cross Gallery in Bristol for 15 years. His paintings have also been shown in Denmark and France.
