The main influences on Tom’s work are the sky, land and water and how light interacts with each, whether breaking through clouds, highlighting the countryside or reflecting on water.
Sligo has been Tom’s home for the past 25 years. It’s natural, then, for him to use the west coast as inspiration for his oil paintings, mostly capturing the effects of the rising and setting sun on this varied background of sea shore, lakeside and captivating, diverse land.
His work is mostly held in private collections, mainly in Ireland and the UK, including that of the Polish Ambassador to Ireland and Mark Feehily from Westlife. His recent exhibitions were as part of a group show of Sligo Artists titled Art, Land of Heart’s Desire at Gallery Zozimus, Dublin and as part of a group show at Lissadell House, Sligo.
