Many people have recognized his talents and contracted him to paint their portrait, special moments of a families past. Tom has sold paintings and portraits to people all over the United States.
Tom’s mural painting started with an outdoor winter scene of birch trees in the northern woods. The scene was a series of 5 large paintings that were hung in a Perkins Restaurant in Duluth MN. It was not long after this that Tom was inspired to paint his art on the walls of a building as his media of choice, interior, and exterior. He has honed his skills to ensure realistic depth perception and the attention to detail he was known for. Over the past 12 years, Tom has painted many murals here in the twin ports of Duluth, MN. and Superior, WI… There are now many large-scale murals on businesses interior and exterior walls that are visible to the public.
