Tom Rickis
Style : Tom considers himself an impressionist landscape painter working primarily in watercolors and oils. Heís a minimalist and does not like to overload his paintings with excessive details, but just enough to give the viewer a sense of emotion, mood and an intimate realism. Another characteristic of Tomís diversity is his abstract paintings.

Composition : When he is painting landscapes, his subjects are usually representational or traditional in nature working with a limited color palette. His abstract paintings are geometric design collages using complimentary colors, textures and shapes.

Training : Tom initially started out as a self-taught artist and later earned his Bachelor of Arts degree as a Special Studies Major from Central Connecticut State University. He also attended the University of Connecticut and the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford.
