Artist: Tom Riley
Tom Riley is a resident artist at ArtWork Studios & Gallery. He has a very distinctive graphic style.
He says, "I first felt a passion for art at a young age watching Warner Brothers cartoons, drawing the characters for hours. As I got older I moved onto comic books and spent countless hours drawing from them, this laid the foundation of my style.
I paint mostly portraits, people that seem interesting or stand out in some way. A lot of my source material comes from Alternative, Fashion and Music magazines as well as 'b' movies and horror films."
Tom graduated in Fine Art from the University of Lancashire.
