Plein-Air painting in Giverny France at Monet's Garden
Tommy received his art education at the Maryland Institute College of Art where he earned a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Art. His love for and pursuance of art started before he attended the Institute. Drawing and painting most of his life, Roberts gives credit for his love of art blossoming to the surface at the age of nine. At this age he was also diagnosed with muscular dystrophy which has confined him to a wheel chair. Although his physical condition kept him from running and playing football & baseball with the neighborhood kids, his artistic appetite increased thereby creating a different kind of outlet for enjoying his childhood and young adult life. Tommy has experienced the wonders and enlightenment of traveling, visiting Paris and painting in Monet's Garden, Jamaica, The Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and Mexico, to name a few. All of these places and life experiences have helped to develop his unique drawing and painting style. In his portraits (people, animals) Tommy has an uncanny ability to capture the subject's emotions, character and spirit. His interpretations of
landscape paintings reflect the atmosphere, beauty and essence of the scene.
Tommy's enthusiasm for life and art is the reason so many art enthusiasts have been admiring his positive spirit and his works for years.
