Tom Carlton Art was formed when an artist friend dared me to expand my art skill set into fine Arts. With 20 years in Graphics and Comics I was ready to take the dare and step into a new world of art. So I painted Gandalf. Was received well and I formed Tom Carlton Art based on that dare. Now every hundred paintings I do I return to that dare and paint Gandalf once more. I have in the years since I started Tom Carlton Art taken my art all across this country and to many states showing my art at Comic Book Conventions and art venues. I even have had the opportunity to share my art with many of the celebrities I have painted.
I am self taught but do have a degree in Advertising for what it is worth. The school did teach me a good foundation in art. But my trip to Europe to tour the Art museums taught me more than any classroom.
