(b. 1967 )
Raised in North Carolina, Tom attended the School of Design at North Carolina State University. After college Tom moved west and found his true home in the deserts and forests of Arizona. Working in oils, he seeks to convey the beauty of the Southwest and its relationship to the human spirit. For him this means exploring the ephemeral dance of light on these timeless landscapes. Much like the infinite expressions each human face is capable of, so too the play of sun and shadow on the land reveals the emotional intent of each work. It provides an inexhaustible source of exploration.
Working both en plein air and in studio works, Tom and his wife divide their time between Phoenix and Prescott AZ
