I have been a full-time visual artist for 30 years. Most of that time has been devoted to painting portraits of people, pets and buildings; making sure my customers are happy with the results. You can commission me to paint portraits, but I'm also capable of painting murals, decor art and more. I have sold many pieces through art galleries. You can purchase these works directly from Tommy or from specific sites mentioned on my website. You can hire me to be your photographer as well. 




All of my paintings are made from scratch. (except for when customers ask for a photo image to be enhanced with paint). Oil paintings are done on white long-lasting canvas. Pastel portrait paintings, charcoal portraits, colored pencil portraits are all done on paper and need to be framed under glass.

Pet portrait paintings, Bridal portrait paintings, Building portrait paintings, are done on canvas or paper.

I will do my best to satisfy whatever visual art needs you may have. I can paint by referencing a customer's photos or can be hired as a photographer. Your old black and white photos can be turned into a glorious colorful painting! I work from my studio in Raleigh, NC.
