Tom Hughes

Tom Hughes works only on location where he can be before his subject and surrounded by the elements. He works small and paints fast, completing each painting in a single sitting before the light and weather has changed. Confident in both urban areas where he paints on street corners and in rural settings, Tom works year-round in all weather, braving snow, rain and wind to try and capture the world as it appears on any given day.

Tom is a regular exhibitor at London’s Mall Galleries and has been selected for both the Lynn Painter-Stainers prize and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

‘I paint from life. Light, composition and weather turn me on. There is beauty everywhere, on any day of the year and I want to share that with you. Truth – Beauty – Freedom.’
