From my beginnings in a two-room Colorado ranchland schoolhouse, I have had a love affair with nature; this has remained constant throughout my life and art.  In the early years of my career, James Mills, art editor for the Denver Post, described my work as “quietly striking.” Bonnie Gangelhoff of Southwest Art expounded on my “ability to capture both the humorous and sensitive sides of animals, freezing their relationships, movements, and behaviors in bronze.”  I have sold and showed art in England, Italy, Russia and across the United States. The inspiration for my work comes from my animals who live on my small ranch in Southeast Wyoming. I created this sculpture in tribute to all my dear departed animal friends who are “In Good Hands.”

This nocturnal painting tells a story …. the campfire will be doused soon, and the men are packing up and “breaking camp.” They enjoy what they do and I enjoy what I do. There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction seeing a canvas come to life. I have been blessed with many awards throughout my career, the most recent being chosen as the 2016 Honored Artist for the Buffalo Bill Art Show in Cody, Wyoming. My work has been selected as the Cheyenne Frontier Day’s Limited Edition Print for three years and the poster for one.  Other shows include the Cowgirl Up in AZ, Western Visions in Jackson Hole, and A Timeless Legacy in Kalispell, MT.  I have been featured on the cover of Southwest Art and many other publications. Gallery representation is the Big Horn Galleries, Mountain Trails Fine Art in Santa Fe, and The West Lives On Gallery in Jackson Hole.

I received Bachelor’s Degrees in both art and zoology from San Diego State University, and a Master’s Degree in biology from the University of Utah. A summer spent doing research in an isolated corner of Utah convinced me that I wanted more than anything to paint the great open landscapes of the West. Living in Laramie, Wyoming provides infinite opportunities to see and paint the high, open country I love. My work is in public and private collections around the West and beyond, including the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, and the Wyoming State Museum. My galleries are Big Horn Galleries in Cody, Wyoming and Tubac, Arizona; Deselms Fine Art in Cheyenne, Wyoming; and Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Tom is a Representational/Realist Artist working in the tradition of the Old Masters. One of his goals is to create a landscape that evokes a sense of time and space. Tom accomplishes this through his process of gathering material, studying the design concept, putting together the pieces, and painting from life. According to Tom, “starting from scratch and getting the basics of painting has taken nearly most of my lifetime; I will always be a student of the art of painting.”

Tom has received multiple awards: The Silver Medal for the Arts for the Parks in 1994 and 2004; People’s Choice at the Telluride Plein-Air, The NWR and The OPA Western Regional; and Best of Show in the National Open Exhibition at the Colorado Watercolor Society, to name a few.

My graphite drawings of people of the American West are reflections of my admiration of the people who work and live the Western life, both in the past and current day. I enjoy the deep emotion and personality that can be created with a graphite or charcoal portrait. With each piece, it is my hope and desire to depict the spirit and personalities of these unique individuals, capturing a mood or a moment in time.

I participate in a variety of art shows throughout the West. My artwork has been featured in several publications, including “Art of the West,” “Southwest Art,” “Western Art Collector,” and “Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing”. I am represented by the Legacy Gallery.
