"I create bespoke artwork for you"
tailored acrylic and digital car art - pet paintings and people portraiture - bespoke statement pieces - freelance architecture visuals
I'm Tom, a local artist interested in bringing your ideas to life!
I'm a Burntwood and Lichfield based artist painting portrait, pets, landscape, architecture and Formula 1 art. I paint digital pieces, and also with acrylics, watercolour and oil. I am also experienced in creating architectural illustrations and 3D visuals for a range of companies, making use of my skills in 3DS Max, Photoshop and Sketchup.
I'm an arts and design professional, living and working from a converted old school that some of my family were taught at. Hence the name, "The Old Arthouse" I love being in the studio creating artwork for people who will cherish it, or for those looking for the perfect gift for a family member or loved one.
My work is inspired by my suburban and woodland surroundings, everyday life scenarios and creating art that tells a story.
If you like my work then I'd love to hear from you to find out what we can create together.
"Tom painted a beautiful portrait of my two dogs. He kept me updated with how painting was progressing, and was happy for any input from me to make sure I was satisfied with final outcome. I would definitely recommend"
"I asked for a portrait of my Grandad for my Dad and it was blown out of the park by this gentleman he went the extra mile with his work I will he coming back for more thank you man"
"Two incredible pieces by Tom. One a motorsport memory and the other a classic favourite. Impeccable work and highly recommended!"
"Very pleased indeed with our picture, hanging beautifully in the hall for all to see."
"So where to start...
I commissioned Tom to put onto canvas 2 beautiful pictures of my brothers pre-wedding photo shoot. Tom smashed these out in a week for me (Rapid!!) it is Incredible that he could do these so quickly and by God the quality was spot on! He captured every bit of colour from the sunset, every bit of detail in the landscape and seriously blew my mind in the definition of the painting as a whole.
His communication from start to completion was quick, concise and accurate to the information he needed to portray to me about the canvas sides, depth and any additional extras.
These 2 paintings by Tom are at the limelight of my brother's house now and the first thing you see after stepping over the threshold. My brother and his newly wed wife both adore and cherish the paintings saying they are both so Personal and such a lovely, original and unique gift idea.
With a painting such as the ones I had commissioned your not just getting a snapshot of time put onto canvas. You're having the fine skill of a man who’s got a amazing talent to put depth, passion and detail especially whilst using acrylics onto canvas that draws you in. Looking from any angle adds much more perspective to the moment and allows features to be highlighted much more then just a 2D printed picture.
Tom was professional, friendly and very reliable through out my commission, I will 100% be using him again in the future with many more ideas for paintings being planned. Stand by to become the future ships painter Mr Glover."
