Tom is a painter living and working in London. He studied at Central St Martins and Camberwell College of Art and has held a studio since 2004.
Tom’s practice as a painter is based very simply on his love for the medium and it’s natural characteristics and his instinctive need to indulge in the physical act of painting. Like so many painters, Tom experiences a constant base urge to make things. This urge manifests as a growing frustration and a pressure which is released only when he is absorbed in the act of making a painting. When he stops, it begins to build again. Tom paints as a response to an essential instinctual need.
