Tom Reeves

Tom Reeves was born in 1967 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. "California is a pretty contemporaray state and a bit of the citizens have rubbed off on me and it shows in some of the abstract works." Reeves says when asked where he currently lives. He lives in Riverside, California with his wife, three children and their two dogs. Before devoting his life to art, Tom knew he wanted to be an artist. His parents wanted him to be a lawyer but he says the doodling on his term papers was more impressive than the words in the papers. After Tom moved to California, Tom worked as a commercial and residential painter and later did murals and paintings on canvas.

What is your biggest inspiration for art?

I am inspired by art. I love to walk exhibitions at local galleries and especially at The Museum of Contemporary Art in LA.

When did your career in the arts start?

I didn't begin painting for others until after college and after the birth of my first child. My wife encouraged me to follow my dreams.

What mediums do you use for your art? Why do you like these mediums the best?

I mainly paint using acrylic paints and for my giclee and reproduction work I'm able to clean up and perfect my art digitally. Call me old fashioned, I prefer the brush over the mouse!

How would you describe the style of art you create?

My style is contemporary and my touch is in the abstract. It's all about color and design. For me. It's not about another tree; it is about the color reflecting my mood.

What do you enjoy most about being an artist?

I love doing something that I love. Even in the lean months I know that I'm blessed to being doing what I do.

What is your favorite piece you've created so far?

I took a photo by the ocean as the sun set on a beautiful Californian sunset. It somehow looked different to me than all the other sunset images. Over the next few weeks I hand painted my rendition of that evening's tide. This image was published as a poster.

What do you feel is your greatest strength in your art?

I love color. That is my greatest strength, recognizing the importance of color. The future may look grey and dim but your walls don't have to!
