Tom Paterson

Tom Paterson is an emerging artist - who recently picked up his paint brushes after a 30-year career as a lighting camera operator.

His work has taken him around the world, but Tom has always loved the landscapes surrounding his home in the Northeast of England.

A working life behind a lens has given him drone and photography skills that he now applies to his art, inspiring him to create new perspectives.

He works mostly in acrylic because its fast-drying properties allow him to explore textures and form, building layers evoking the depth of the landscape.
