Tom Sherwood interprets the beauty of the human form and the natural environment in exquisite detail. His mastery of perspective, anatomy and techniques that define Renaissance art – egg tempera and gold leaf on wood panel – elevates the work to a spiritual dimension. In his paintings, drawings, and wood block prints, the artist integrates a rich variety of inspirations: poetry, garden landscapes, mythology, architecture, and mathematics.

Based in Bellingham since 1970, Sherwood has traveled and taught art at colleges and universities in the United States and China. His life and work have touched many prominent Washington artists, including Susan Bennerstrom, John Cole, Ann Morris, and Thomas Wood, among others. Tom Sherwood: A Golden Perspective offers viewers an unusual opportunity to experience the unique work of a master artist, who has made a significant contribution to our community’s creativity.
