Tom first started painting in an art studio in the attic of his home. He dabbled in wood carvings, continued to paint both abstract pieces and historic buildings and landscapes, all the while making a "real" living as a bank consultant.
His metal sculptures range from 2 feet tall to a 500 lb. piece, that stands in the prestigious law offices of Kimberly Clark in Washington, DC, to an even larger ton and a half piece commissioned by a private collector in Jacksonville, FL.
Eleven years ago he and his wife Dee moved to Sky Valley, Georgia where Tom retired from the business world in 2009. Tom continued to write books, with five novels he hopes to have published while still concentrating on his art.
Some of his pieces can be seen at the "Gallery of Gems" in Franklin, NC. and the Timpson Creek Gallery west of Clayton.
