Tom Swimm has felt an instinctive need to paint since his early childhood. Although he is self-taught, he has long been inspired by the work of Van Gogh, Monet, and Hopper, and he considers these masters his teachers. Tom's first one-man exhibition was at the Pacific Edge Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. His work has also been displayed in several other California galleries, at ArtExpo New York, and at the APPAF Exhibition in Paris, France. His paintings have also appeared on the cover of Skyward Marketing's in-flight magazine in 2001, as well as on the cover ofArtist's Magazinein 1992. And Tom's work is currently featured in several Walter Foster Publishing titles
