Tom’s passion for painting began after college. He attended Watts Atelier of the Arts, in California, where he indulged his love of mythical monsters.
“If I had to choose a favourite subject to paint,” Tom says, “it’d be dragons. There’s an infinite amount of design possibilities and a slight change in features can change the creature’s entire personality.”
The San Diego-based freelance artist is currently working on a series combining his fascination with the fictional fire-breathers and real-life nature. The project approaches the painting of fantasy creatures with a naturalist’s eye. “By doing so,” Tom says, “I hope to help the viewer rediscover some of the magic that exists in our own natural world.”
