Tom McGee, Artist I grew up in the hill country around Austin Texas and discovered my artistic talents at an early age. I set my sights on architecture as a profession in 5th grade and never wavered until after college. After careers in architecture, ministry and the tech industry, I am back to my first love, art. In addition to my degree in design from Texas A&M, I have worked under the watchful of eye of great instructors in both representational and abstract painting. I was the king of the darkroom in my college photography classes and love all the artistic options available in the digital photography world. I hope you enjoy looking around and find something that could bring you or someone you love a bit of joy and inspiration.
I believe in a spiritual approach to the mystery of life and seek to create a window for others to see the dance of light and life. I want others to enjoy the beauty and creative inspiration of original artwork and will seek to keep my work affordable and even free at times!
An Artist Statement: I create inspirational images that celebrate the dance of light and life. I do this is variety of mediums and using a wide variety of techniques including impressionism, abstraction, acrylic paints, oil paints and 3D printing. All living things seem to celebrate life, I have seen whales whirl skyward, ravens dance in a circle and listened to frogs scream all night long. Here is a poem that expresses some of this (I call it, An Artist Statement):
warm, cool, the dawn glows over the Sangres this morning -a lone raven flies
no photographs taken just the stillness of peace -awaiting sunrise
embracing essence in myself and creation -the artist spirit
my friends, the birds, are already looking for food -I take in the dawn
hello brother sun the saint would say to you -as the winter fades
mister flicker plays drums on the fireplace vent hood -what is he saying?
perhaps the same thing.
perhaps his art is banging on a vent, glad to be alive!
