Tom Fuller

Western Art Collector - - ARTIST FOCUS -

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.
