    • Arts

Thom studied Fine Art at the University of Brighton, graduating in 2009. A lot of the time focusing on portraiture and drawing inspiration from 1980s pop culture (think Murder she Wrote, The Golden Girls, Dynasty). Thom I also explores landscapes and works predominantly in oil.
 
In March 2017, he was commissioned by ArtFund and the Jewish Museum London to create a large scale drawing which formed a crucial part of the Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait exhibition. He has created work for arts venues in the South East, London galleries and international clients, and in 2019, designed the Family Trail for Hastings Contemporary Gallery. 
 
Alongside writer John Murray, Thom co-created and co-curated Celebrate the Mountains, a monthly arts and creative writing newsletter sent straight to your email. You can sign up here.
 
His first solo show, Untitled (Miss. Ms. Other), was hosted by St Mary in the Castle's Crypt Gallery in April 2017, and in 2018 the exhibition, You are an Ocean and I am a Living Thing, was at the Poetry Society in Covent Garden, London in 2018. 
 
In 2021 Thom participated in Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year having his portrait selected by celebrity sitter, actress Lydia West. 

In 2023 his solo exhibition 'Why I long to be a sex symbol' took place at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery. A collection of 12 brand new oil paintings it explores the liminal space between a celebrity's private and public personas captured in paparazzi photographs from the 1960s to the 2000s.
