Thomas R. Taneyhill is a fine artist and illustrator. With an emphasis on classical and art history, Tom earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Berkeley. While attending the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Tom perfected his style.
After spending several years as a successful illustrator, Tom began his own series of work in 2002. Demand for his landscape paintings grew quickly. Tom's work can now be found in private and corporate collections.
"In my experience, the art of being an illustrator is the ability to create within the parameters set by the client. The fine artist attempts to make art itself an individual statement. I see my own artistic vision as a union of both disciplines.
Presently, I find great inspiration in the landscape of Northern California. With a painting style developed during my time as an illustrator, I attempt to portray the subject in a way that evokes a sense of beauty. However, my greatest challenge is to find the elusive quality of timelessness hidden within a modern landscape."
Tom currently residences in the Lamorinda community of the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lives with his wife, daughter and Border Collie.
