Mitch Turpin

 

Mitch was born & raised in East London, and has a variety of colourful stories surrounding the 43 years he lived there - ranging from “The Great Aldgate Beer Heist” to the bottom of his car falling out on the Autobahn, to the loss of a bacon sandwich during a bombing of the building in which he was working. These and many more stories are available upon request.

After spending 42 years in the corporate rat race, Mitch is pursuing his dream of ‘being his own boss’ – creating works of art in his home studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Previously, he has been a telecommunications engineer, car salesman, flooring specialist, manager of an Irish pub, operations manager at a law firm and real estate title examiner.
