Thomas, age 25, is a self-trained graphite photo-realist/ realist. His use of rudimentary writing pencil and adherence to miniature forged the hyper-acute technique needed for the fine detail in his portraits, architectural designs and figure drawings. He expanded into digital illustration with the same principles while working from scratch, and is also an emphatic creative writer, musician, actor and editorial model.  Sections about each discipline are available on this website.

Having exhibited nationally since the age of 16, he has attended group showings as well as prestigious art fairs such as Art Expo, Select and World Wide Art Fair. In addition, his work is displayed on various internationally acclaimed websites, showcased in global museum quality and exclusive catalogs such as the International Contemporary Artists catalog by IncoArtists and the Hidden Treasure Art Magazine by HT Art Magazine Publishing, has been personally commended by Ivy League institutions such as Princeton University and Columbia University, and has earned him a membership in the American Artist Professional League.

As a self-taught artist, proper resources were necessary in order to reach a professional level and harness his aptitude for detailed drawing. With influences like Frank Lloyd Wright and Salvador Dali, he studied in his own time from books and observation to create a unique but technical approach to the genre. After about 8 years he was recognized for his proficiency despite never having been conventionally taught in any art school.
