Tom paints and photographs the natural surroundings that have influenced his love of the outdoors. He wants his work to encourage people to visit and protect the fragile environment we live in. His photographs have been used by environmental groups such as the Native Conservancy to further this cause. He also paints oil on canvas. The pieces are gallery wrapped so that the artwork requires no framing. He tries to represent nature truthfully in both his paintings and photography and does not alter his photographs digitally.
The term “Giclee” (Gee-Clay) is French for ‘Inkjet Print’, or actually ‘Spray of Ink.’. The process is digital printmaking with a printer that uses minute droplets of archival ink to produce prints that cannot be duplicated by other printing technique. Because there is no visible dot screen pattern the resulting image has all of the subtle tonalities of the original art or Photo.
This produces exceptional museum quality prints. With this new technology the printer can achieve a true reproduction of my original done on archival Canvas.
