Since childhood, Tommie has always been intrigued with exploring the “rural path”. She has a great curiosity for old, abandoned places and the fragments that are left behind from people’s lives. Tommie’s photographs reflect an ethereal composition which illuminates the spirit in nature. This also brings to light the timeless soul and story that has been forgotten.

During school, Tommie was encouraged by her family and teachers to pursue and hone her talent. While attending Indiana University, she decided to pursue the path of self-study, abandoning the rigid structure of traditional art classes. After painting several national and local mural designs she began to develop her own style of painting and photography.

In her paintings she utilizes a dry brush effect with acrylic paint to achieve the multi-layered and fine detail prominent in her work. She chooses to mix with three primary colors to attain the many hues that are present.

Alongside her paintings Tommie pursued her photography of abandoned places, natural settings and unique objects that have shaped and cultivated her vision of the river towns of the Midwest.

At the current time Tommie’s plans are on studying the natural environment along the Ohio River and the Midwest region by photographing and painting the communion of the past’s story as it unfolds into the present.
