Born in 1978; Tom has a BA Honours degree in History and History of Art from Oxford Brookes University. Following which he attended drawing classes at the Royal Academy. Ultimately though he credits his artistic training to his family background, being the son of a professional artist and the grandson of an architect. His work is characterised by direct observation that allows him the freedom of expression this is seen in his loose brushwork capturing the changing light and movement of the subject.
Tom has recently travelled to India through Rajasthan from Delhi to Jodhpur and out to the old fort in Nagaur for the annual cattle fair. Working again from direct observation his brushwork has evolved to absorb these vibrant scenes that contrast with his handling of the British landscape subjects.
Equally impressive in both watercolour and oil, Tom has successfully exhibited in London and the provinces. He has exhibited with the Royal Society of British Portrait Painters, the Royal Institute of British Artists and the New English Art Club.
