The quality of Tom’s work is amazing. Our expectations were exceeded in every way. You will not be disappointed if you add one of his pieces to your collection!
I've always been a creative person and enjoy many subjects and media. I typically prefer to finish my artwork by framing it.
I merely a humble artist who enjoys painting what he finds inspiration in, what he loves. I work in a variety of mediums, depending on the subject matter.
My subject matter ranges from happy, beautiful flamingos, to nudes, images of lucid dreams to the disturbing emotions of grief.
In September of 2015, I relocated from Philadelphia, PA to Sarasota, FL. I became so enamored with this beautiful area, I knew I needed to focus my creativity on a subject matter that I associated with it. I honed my focus on the American flamingo. The American flamingo has a more intense pink to orange color that I find myself fascinated with. The flamingo, in general for me, brings to mind a sense of joy and peace coupled with pure love. They're such beautiful creatures and a pleasure to study that I wanted to create these works in a fun and minimalistic manner.
Most of my art listings are Giclee prints. I use a professional Giclee printing shop. My Giclee prints are TRUE Giclee. Being thus, they are slightly more expensive than cheap, desktop prints. With the same proper care that you would give an original watercolor painting, they will last just as long as the original.
In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting. Giclee (pronounced Zhee-Clay) is a French term meaning to spray. However, it is NOT the same as a standard printer and is much larger. Giclee prints are a little over a metre wide and are often affectionately referred to as a “knitting machine” as they look very similar.

Additional policies and FAQs
If this is a piece that you would like to be framed (and it is not already) I will ask that you allow me time to have the piece framed, a typical turnaround time can be 14-18 days before I am able to get it shipped out to you. I ask for your patience in this matter due to the fact that most of my pieces are not already pre framed.
I'm not a professional photographer and do my best to photograph my pieces. I apologize for occasionally, having my image reflected in glass. I assure you that what you'll receive will be even nicer in person!
