My interest in art started very early, as soon as I could handle a
pencil. Encouraged by my parents, both fine artists, I was
exposed to many forms of artistic expression, both visual and
musical, throughout my formative years. As a child my family and
I lived in Rome, Italy, for two years while my father was a Fellow
in sculpture at the American Academy in Rome. In addition, I
lived and traveled in Mexico and Europe for several years as an
adult, working with charitable organizations. My artistic
development and influences continued during my education in high
school in Connecticut and later through the School of Fine Arts at
Boston University, Boston, MA; the Lyme Academy of Fine Art,
Old Lyme, CT; and the School of Visual Arts, NY.

Tom Matt. As a resident of New York, Tom finds inspiration on a
daily basis all around him along city streets and avenues and
through the people he meets.
Taking the paper-of-the-day as his canvas, the artist finds city
scenes that captivate and spark his creativity. With pastel as his
medium of choice, he draws these views 'on-site' on top of the
front of New York newspapers. The merging of city-news and
city-views forms a unique portrait and synthesis of a layered
metropolitan landscape. The series is available as commissioned
artwork, originals, and limited edition prints
Portrait commissions are available from the artist, created 'from
life' on archival paper or newspaper in the medium of charcoal
pencils or pastel.
