Welcome to the portfolio of Tom Tomos, take a look around and let me know what you think.

Why are most galleries so unadventurous in what they're prepared to hang? I know they're in the business to sell - BUT..... surely there's more to the British buying public than chocolote box Sunday watercolour-loving...... Need I go on?

My work has recently returned to a more figurative style - but I allow that that might not always be obvious in all of my paintings! The sea and the landscape are my abiding interests. I am particularly interested in the long-lasting effect of human activity on the landscape. That explains my present preoccupation with castle ruins, old farmsteads and the managed rural mountainscapes that feature amongst my current work.
My style is my own, but I am greatly influenced by the work of other British painters; Bomberg, Lanyon, Heron, Jarman.
I am currently working on linoprints and woodcuts and a series of paintings entitled Capeli Cymru or Welsh Chapels
