Tom is our first featured artist and we are honored to be hosting a small example of his works here at the Art Center.  A native of North Carolina, Tom has been living on a boat for the last few years.  He has enjoyed painting canvases with acrylics since May 1998.  During that time, he was traveling a great deal throughout Europe always with a camera in hand.  It seemed natural to use these photos for subject matter.  Many of his more recent subjects have been various places here in NC including Edenton, Ocracoke, and New Bern. Tom is self-taught and his style is a combination of impressionism and realism, leaning more towards impressionists.  His influences include Monet, Renoir, and Cesanne, yet still has a great appreciation for the Masters of the Renaissance.  All of his artwork is available for purchase.  If you are interested in acquiring a one-of a kind piece, please feel free to give us a call for further details.  We will gladly ship anywhere in the U.S.
