Tom Graduated from the Fine Arts Programme at St. Lawrence College in 1980 with a major in photography, and continued his studies at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. Periods of refreshment were spent photographing the West coast of British Columbia.
In 1983 Tom studied glass and glass blowing under artists Denis Lucan and Bob Petrie in the Niagara area and eventually opened his own studio.
After 12 years of cottaging in the Highlands, Tom relocated his business, “Glass Eagle Studios” to Haliburton which he now calls home. He spends much time in the forests and on the lakes, canoeing and kayaking. Tom’s love of nature inspires everything he does. Tom continues to supply various retail outlets and welcomes commission work.
