Shine by Thomas RomcoeAward winning Chicago-born artist relocated to Ogden, Utah who is primarily self-taught and studied privately under the famous palette-knife painter Ruiz.

Tom, as an artist, has sold many paintings in his lifetime and is quite prolific. He expresses his innermost feelings in pieces, creating scenes by memory or just simply producing them out of thin air. His command of light and color are outstanding producing paintings that move you emotionally. His impressionistic flowers are always a delight to view, as well as his landscapes, abstracts and steam engine wheels.

Now almost sixty-five, the future holds more artwork promised to be the best yet to be created by this emerging yet somewhat established talent.

He has worked on computer generated artwork that reveals a whole new side to his creativity.
