Hi, my name is Tom, I am a Scottish artist based in Laurieston, Falkirk, Scotland, UK.
I was born in Great Western Road Glasgow Scotland in 1945, brought up & educated in Rutherglen Lanarkshire, where I developed my interest in Art & what was referred to then as Technical Drawing, with Art scoring above Technical Drawing, I then moved to Dundee with my parents in 1960. Leaving School at the age of 15.
I did not do much about my art until the late 60’s into the early 70’s & without the internet all my paintings were sold, but for two which I have kept to this day.
Family & work promotions from Dundee to Aberdeen then Callander in the Trossachs, followed by retiring to Cyprus for 9 years then returning to Scotland in 2015, putting a house and garden in order prevented my continuing with my art until 2018, however now in my retirement I have surely started again. I am a self taught artist with a good supply of my Fathers Artistic Genes passed onto me.
Back in the 60’s & 70’s I was an Emerging Artist, Now almost 50 years later I am a "Re-Emerging Artist."
Because I am self taught I can focus on the direction I want to go, currently Contemporary Art, focusing mainly on Landscapes, Seascapes, Castles, Cottages etc. in a realistic style and venturing into other themes such as Abstract, mainly in Acrylics and Oils..
All original paintings are available without frames which allows the purchaser to look for a frame that suits their own décor. Note - the paintings shown in frames are to give an idea how they will look hung on a wall.
Feel free to explore my website http://www.tomdeasart.com where you will currently see a variety of themes totalling 43 originals, plus 19 Digital created Prints & 3 prints from originals by my Father (whose genes I have) Plus a section where Family Crests & Family Name Histories etc. can be seen for special order.
