I have drawn and painted my whole life and, while my work is characterized by lively composition, my approach varies with medium and mood. I strive to create works with visual appeal and technical quality and am motivated by the world around me - our woodlands in our own backyard, for example - and by ideas and reflections (like most artists, I am a daydreamer!). I love to add texture to my work and explore a variety of ways to do so - sand, tissue, spackle. I'm as apt to use a brush as a palette knife, and even an old credit card. I work primarily in acrylic, oils and pastels.
Below are some current pieces you will find at our Studio, or at the Hubbard & Co. in Spencerville. Depending on the nature of the piece, it may be framed or simply have museum-quality canvas edges painted. Frames, if used, are included in the pricing. Tom has used stained pine frames with matte for pastels, rough cut cedar for some pieces. HST is NOT included in the pricing, however.
