Tom Shepherd Art
Tom is a watercolour & Acrylic artist specialising in birds. The movement and character of the birds are the main focus, however, if there’s a splash of colour and some interesting light all the better!
As well as originals Tom also sells prints and is a much sought after tutor.
Tom started off his art career creating custom artwork on guitars using graffiti pens. Making a move towards a brush and more traditional mediums opened up a whole new world and he hasn’t looked back since.
Starting off in oils and acrylics Tom has recently moved to watercolour:
“The free flowing and expressive nature of watercolour, for me, makes it the perfect medium to capture the fleeting nature, movement, character and colours of birds.
I do love painting a wide variety of subjects, especially if the light is doing something interesting, but I am time and time again drawn back to the place where my first two passions met; painting wildlife, in particular birds.
They are an endlessly fascinating subject in every way, and a painter’s dream. As far back as I can remember bird encounters are etched in my memory and they have become personal iconic representations of specific places, times and experiences. Painting is a wonderful way to conjure up these memories as well as create inspiration to seek out more!”
Tom’s studio is currently based in Warwickshire but he will be soon moving out to West Wales to be closer to the wildlife and landscapes that inspire him the most. As well as originals Tom also sells prints and is a much sought after tutor, teaching regularly throughout the year for Art groups and societies, as well as running his own workshops and courses.
