Tom has been working with wood since the early 1960s. His interests ranged from timber framing and cabinet making to sculpture. Early sculpture pieces were of water birds and busts. Recent works have focused on busts of native Americans carved from logs of oak, cherry, and basswood.
In 2005 Tom began to work with mild steel, creating garden sculptures of dancing cranes and human figures with an emphasis on motion. His lifelong love of fly fishing has inspired him to create life-sized striped bass for indoor display which ranges from individual fish to schools.
Tom resides in Cape Elizabeth, Maine with his wife Kathy.
