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.
