Tom developed a love of drawing from an early age which was recognised in the early 80’s when he was awarded an art scholarship to Bedes school in Sussex.
Later he studied under Llewellyn Thomas RCA at the Kent Institute of Art & Design where his peers included internationally acclaimed artists, Dan Baldwin and Carne Griffiths.
Tom Homewood’s art is instantly recognisable. He is a traditional painter and works predominantly in oils.
His distinguishing skill is his ability to capture the essence of a subject using very few marks. As the painter and art critic Julian Bell put it, “Tom has an extraordinary gift for making a line sing.”
Tom has exhibited extensively and his work can be found in private collections all over the world.
He has been represented by the Northcote Gallery in Chelsea since 2007 and has recently exhibited at the Royal College of Art and the Saatchi Gallery.
Tom was also selected to exhibit at Glyndebourne for their 80th Anniversary.
