For Tom Fuller, passion is the driving force behind every single masterpiece. His work is what, and who, he is. Fuller is dedicated to his calling, which is evidenced by the tremendous number of hours he spends on paintings inspired by God’s inspiration, family, friends and owners. His work is focused, detailed and not produced in volume. Through his work, Fuller depicts the definitive nature of each cowboy, cowgirl, horse and landscape of the West.
“Tom Fuller is someone to start collecting now,” says collector Grace Snidow. “His artwork helps the viewer hear the thunder under the horse’s hooves, and the smell of the dust and leather, and lastly, see the twinkle in the cowboy’s life from living his life well spent. Tom is a good man and an amazing artist who puts his heart and soul into each piece of work!”
A native of Wichita, Kansas, Fuller’s paintbrushes are untouched by the hands of artistic teachings, and not influenced or subscribed to any painting method, or style. He did not attend art school, and is without any formal training. Rather, his techniques have evolved from a lifetime of drawing and painting, and are completely his own.
As collector Deanna Prins puts it, “Tom Fuller’s art is truly aspiring to the American cowboy way of life. It captivates the essence of the heart and soul it harnesses in its natural environment—a beautiful dance between animal and human in perfect harmony.”
At the heart of each piece of art is Fuller’s intention to preserve and promote the West in its greatest traditions, and to bring a feeling of home. “That’s the cowboy in me,” says the artist.
