About the artist
Tom has been a practising artist for over 30 years, and has been involved in engaging community in art through schools programs in Melbourne. Tom seeks to break down barriers to artistic appreciation and participation, working with unlikely participants to nurture artistic skills, a sense of place and ultimately open the dialogue about animals, country and people through the art he creates.
His work has been commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Zoo and Crown Casino, while he has spent the last decade continually working on commissions from private collectors in Australia and around the world, with prominent Melbourne figures such as David Bromley collecting his work. Today, one of his pieces is featured on stage in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
