Tom Moore … some of Tom’s paintings can be seen at Studio 6
Born in Windsor, Ontario Canada, Tom Moore has been drawing and painting since he could hold a pencil in his hand. He spent hours with a sketch pad finding encouragement and delight in the response from family and friends. At the age of ten, his mom introduced him to the world of painting with his first set of oils and brushes. After high school, Tom attended Schoolcraft College in his hometown in Michigan. He experimented and seriously developed his natural talent to draw and paint. His teachers were encouraging but responsibilities of family and work put his art on the back burner. Tom’s passion for painting never subsided and he began in earnest as his children became more independent. His favorite subject matter is cowboys and Indians, evoking memories of Westerns he watched as a child. His unique oils on tiles and natural stone were a hit in Santa Fe and Taos, NM. He also studied at the Scottsdale School of Art in AZ under the renowned Dan Meiduch. Moore now finds pleasure in evoking images of times past….a Norman Rockwell feel, giving attention to color and detail, a reflection of simpler times. In 2007 Tom Moore and two other artists began a journey traveling to all 95 counties in TN and compiled a coffee table book entitled Painting Tennessee. Now in its second publication, this book presents a painting from every county in TN with historical facts and the artist’s thoughts on his images.
