Tom's paintings blend realistic beauty with clarity of expression, the goal being to create something special for the viewer. His painting methods are fairly traditional as he is interested in accurately capturing such things as color and light, shape and contrast, composition, mood and atmosphere.
Though primarily a studio painter, Tom strongly believes in the importance of painting outdoors (plein air), which provides him the opportunity to witness nature firsthand. "Outdoor landscapes are fascinating because of the constantly changing light, which in turn, affects color and form. Nature provides an endless source of subject matter that is both beautiful and fleeting."
A Columbus College of Art & Design graduate, Tom has exhibited throughout the Midwest, and has works in a number of significant collections.
