Thomas Myers

Flowers in Blue and Orange

Thomas Myers, Harvest of Pumpkins, 24 x 36 inches, oil on canvas
Thomas L. Myers is a Michigan native, who after serving in the Vietnam War, attended Mott Community College and Central Michigan University achieving his BS in education. He then worked for General Motors for over 30 years. Tom realized an interest in and developed a talent for art later in life and after joining a local painting group became interested in oil painting in particular. Tom finds that the versatility of oil offers him a wide range of painting techniques, from impressionism to realism. Tom's art evokes images of homes, farms and people, influenced by his love for family, home and fond memories. None of his paintings are an exact representation of what he sees. For that, he could take a photograph. His artwork is more about mood and a certain warm feeling done with creativity. Tom has had paintings exhibited at the Art Sales and Rental Gallery at the Flint Institute of Arts and the A & J Gallery in Bay City. He is a member of the Greater Flint Arts Council, Grand Blanc Arts Council, Shiawassee Art Center and the Fenton Art Guild.
