Tom has been selected by Worldwide Art to be represented by them at major art fairs where they show, including the world’s largest fine art fair Artexpo New York:

For forty years and counting, Artexpo has been changing the way people buy and sell art. Our annual, juried expo brings the biggest publishers, galleries, and collectors face to face with hundreds of established and emerging artists.

Tom's exhibition in Kings Road, Chelsea
Tom has shown a selection of his work in an exhibition at 508 Kings Road Gallery, a Contemporary Art Gallery in Chelsea's Kings Road.
London, One Man Show
In early September 2017 Tom had a One Man Show at a South London art gallery. “Joie de Vivre” explored positive, passion, life dreams and aspirations through a series of large uplifting playful abstract pieces of work, created with the same sense of freedom and love of life that the show's title suggests. Tom’s bold use of colour and texture in his works really make his work stand out in that they seem to possess 3D qualities via the generous use of paint and energetic effects that bring the works to life.
