Tom Anderson describes his work as “Figurative art with a taste for the Outdoors.” Like most artists, his interest started when he was a child. On inclement days, he spent time with a piece of paper and pencils trying to draw things he observed and trying to reproduce comic book covers, outdoor magazine covers and various objects an artist would find interesting. Balancing between fine art and illustration,Tom’s work tells a story. “I pretty much draw things in life I am familiar with.” Tom has had his work published in and on national publications. He is affiliated with two national art publishers. He also has had his work hang in many galleries. Tom is a graduate of the University of Minnesota,Duluth receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.Tom, his wife Koni and their four children reside in Virginia, Minnesota.
