We love the rich colours and striking contrasts of Tom Capstick's artwork. Often inspired by the beauty of British countryside, Tom hails from Scotland but he now lives in the North of England. The skill of his art is to translate those natural locations from memory into a truly felt place. The experience of feeling a place's beauty is not just about looking at it objectively, but processing it through one's own senses, with the mind subtly reshaping what is seen into a subjective reality. This is the process which Tom Capstick is able capture in his work.

Rich Impressive Artwork
The dreamlike quality comes through in the almost shimmering quality of the bright colours. This is art of the present day which sits within the great tradition of impressionism going right back to its founder in Claude Monet. Like impressionist paintings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Tom Capstick's art sets out to express the artist's and, by extension, the viewer's perception of nature. It blends the natural colours and shapes of flowers and landscapes with the imagined mind's eye to produce something which matches the sensation of experiencing awe-inspiring nature at its most glorious. Tom has said that his vigorous handling of colour comes from an approach inspired by the richness of memory-laden dreams.
Look into a Tom Capstick painting and you will be immediately transported into that feeling of tranquility and reverie to be found only among the beauty of nature. The scenes which he depicts are often remote rural cottages in stunning settings brimming with nature's plenty. They would be a fantastic addition to any collection or any home, bringing with them a bristling energy and magic. We are pleased to be able to introduce you to a number of original pieces from Tom.
