Tom captured Life studies in pencil and photos, then painted with expressive gestures, lines and contrasting colours.  Exploring complex relationship between an artist and their muses reflecting range of emotions using colour, reflected influences of London School of Painters and Fauvist movements.

Tom series based around Greek Myth of Muses influenced by watching documentary on Venus also images of the storms on Jupiter, captured by NASA Juno probe. 

Paint was pushed into peaks and woven into wonderful swirling expressive spirals, creating a semi-abstract image.

Tom relished the freedom of automatic mark-making and approached  his next series of blank canvases with an entirely open mind.  His breakthrough led to a fabulously series of weird & wonderful abstract landscapes and figures, with a hallucinogenic palate to multiple energy levels.
