Tom Hughes



Born in Colchester and raised in Oxfordshire, Tom now lives with his girlfriend and two children in Bristol. He originally wanted to be a professional snowboarder, “but I wasn’t quite good enough, so my second choice, the more sensible one, (!) was to make a full time living from my art”. He has achieved this with great success since 2005.

His painting splits into two disciplines. The first is working from life, on location or “en plein air” He travels around with my paint box in a backpack, looking for the perfect view or composition and paints small pieces to capture the moment in a single sitting. “I adore the outdoors, just being out there immersed in the elements, is as rewarding to me as making the paintings themselves”.

The second discipline is studio work. “I love painting large and when I’m indoors I have the time, space and controlled lighting to change pace and slow down. I plan my compositions carefully and paint in 4-5 layers over the course of many days. Studio painting is where I get to use all the info and skills I have collected whilst working outside and focus more on scale, impact and a singular vision”.

Tom has won numerous awards, including “Best Emerging Artist” in the National Open Art 2016 and the prestigious Critics Prize at The New English Art Club 2015. He and his work have been featured in many publications including Artists and Illustrators and The Artist. You can also see Tom in his YouTube series “Thoughts on Painting”.
