Derbyshire born, Suffolk bred. I’m Thomas and I now live in Oxfordshire with my wife Emma and our six cats, three chickens, three bunnies and fish. I’m a landscape artist and novelist. My two main inspirations are the work of Edward Ardizzone and Rex Whistler, and my style is somewhere between the two. As a published author, books are my passion, and I am currently working on a project to create an illustrated guide of bookshops. I work principally in Indian Ink and Polychromos artists’ pencils. I take commissions, including maps and book illustration.
