Art is Tom’s great passion in life. He is intrigued by the feelings of his subjects, how they are multi-layered, some fleeting, some constant. His portraits show a deep rooted need to understand and connect. This is not something that is always easy for Tom in day-to-day life. Tom has a receptive language disorder which means he can struggle to understand words and connect language with ideas. 

"This first oil portrait was copied from a photo of my Grandfather back in 2010. It was firstly drawn on a piece of paper, and I enjoyed getting into the experience of catching the textures from him. I then decided to paint in oils and turpentine as an experiment. There is no background because I thought a white clear one would add an appropriate emphasis to his facial expressions. To me, it catches his worrying feeling inside. I wanted to know his inner feelings when I was with him."

After a number of set backs, Tom is admirably throwing himself into his artwork, honing his skills and building a portfolio of really exceptional work. We are right behind him!

Our framed canvas is a 38mm stretched canvas within a modern, deep, picture frame. The simple addition of the frame around the canvas creates a completely new form of wall art, quite distinct to a standard canvas or traditional framing behind glass. The frame also sits approximately 5mm from the edge of the canvas helping create a floating border. This gallery style framing is really special, you will love it!
