This Amado based artist is unlike any artist I have met. No resume, no long list of gallery shows, but he does have a long history of creating art. Don’t expect it to fit into your living room since many of his creations are as large as your house. I consider him the GIANT MAKER. Since 1993 he has been creating giant sculptures out of his La Reata Studio near Elephant Head in Amado.
Unlike most artists waiting for an exhibition at a gallery, Tom gets as much demand for his art as he is able to create and often has a waiting list. When you view the following pictures you will understand why. They are absolutely incredible!
He has created 45 LIFE SIZE dinosaurs for the George C. Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden, Utah; rockwork, waterfalls and savannahs for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science; and the Meercat Exhibit at the Pittsburgh Zoo. (more…)
