After spending several years as a successful illustrator, Tom began his own series of work in 2002. Demand for his landscape paintings grew quickly.
Artist statement - "In my experience, the fine artist attempts to make art itself an individual statement. I see my own artistic vision as a union of both disciplines. I find great inspiration in the landscape of Northern California. With a painting style developed during my time as an illustrator, I attempt to portray the subject in a way that evokes a sense of beauty. However, my greatest challenge is to find the elusive quality of timelessness hidden within a modern landscape."
