Tom Ross' paintings are about life. He captures the moment through color and shape which gives you the undefinable "something" that makes you want more. "Through my painting I want to communicate to the viewer an emotion that transcends the surface image and touches the heart; then we both are richer for the experience".
After graduating from the University of Colorado, Ross pursued a successful business career, but returned to his first love, oil painting. He studied at the Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design and the Art Student's League of Denver, where he worked and painted with some of the West's leading artists.
Ross spends time in both the West and the Upper Midwest, and lives in Naples, Florida, giving him a variety of light and subject matter. His work can be seen in galleries across the U.S. and in private collections throughout the country.
